First Validation tables

Contains three figures that presents various results from all first Validations of EITI countries (42 as of 24 July 2019). Figure 1 presents results of overall assessments, as well as results for each individual requirement. Figure 2 presents the full proportion of results, per requirement.

Applicability

This spreadsheet includes two figures, presenting how many EITI Requirements are applicable in 1) each EITI country, and 2) by each requirement.

Raw Validation database

This spreadsheet includes the raw data table, pulled directly from https://eiti.org/api/v1.0/score_data. It has been included for the benefit of data users to make pivot tables and other custom analyses.

First vs Second / Last

This spreadsheet includes a modified table which presents, per country, Validation results from first and last Validations. Here we monitor changes in progress on individual requirements, otherwise know as corrective actions. One Board-approved corrective action is developed for each requirement where countries have not made Satisfactory progress. The table enables comparison of changes in assessments by the EITI Board on these corrective actions.
