The 2015 Governance Report's convergence indicators measure the extent to which countries in the European Union are similar (converging) for a given variable. Points indicate the convergence measure for a given year. Low values indicate more convergence, higher values indicate less convergence. Countries are grouped into 'convergence clubs': convergence is then measured for countries within a specific group. This allows for the examination of groups of countries that potentially converge together. Vertical lines indicate 95% confidence intervals, a measure of uncertainty.
