Governance Indicators for Mexico 1996 – 2004

  • Everything that got better from 1996 to 2002, got worse in 2004.
  • Everything that got worse from 1996 to 2000, did not get any better or has come down even more.
  • We are above regional averages on every dimension–but that is easy.
  • We are below income category averages on all dimensions but one–regulatory quality.
  • But how can regulatory quality be so high when rule of law is so low?
