GENERAL REMARKS
  1. Minimum number of observations: For estimates to be shown in ‘trends’ and ‘scatter plots’ a minimum number of 20 observations needs to be available. For estimates to be shown in ‘distributions’ a minimum number of 1000 observations needs to be present in order to calculate percentiles.
  2. Country selection: Country selection is limited to countries where at least one estimate is available in DART. In the screens ‘scatter plots’, ‘distributions’, and ‘maps’ selection is restricted to one specific year. The selection tool follows an algorithm of +1 / -1 / +2 / -2 year(s) in order to keep various countries in the charts and tables, where the selected year is not available. Countries with data 3 years or more apart from the selected year are indicated with ‘No data available’ and dimmed grey in the selection menu.
  3. Colouring: Colouring in the tool is pre-defined, following world regions. To change the colour, one can click on the ISO-3 legend on the left-hand selection panel.
  4. Exporting and Importing: By clicking the ‘export’ button, graphs, tables, and documents can be exported as hard copy to your disk. Likewise, through exporting the .json criteria, a file can later on be recreated, when the .json criteria are imported.
