Overall approach for scoring
The evaluation of the overall country performance is based on simple scoring rules: for each data flow, the maximum score is 3 points and the minimum score is – 1 point (see the detailed evaluation criteria on pages 8–26 in this report). Scores from all priority data flow areas are summed up for each country and then expressed as a percentage of the country's maximum score. Maximum scores are country specific, as not all countries are involved in all data flows.
A result of 0 % means that no data have been delivered at all. A result of 100 % means that complete data sets for all areas have been delivered on time.
N/A means not applicable. Some data flows are only relevant for the 28 Member States of the European Union. Furthermore, some countries such as Austria are not party to the relevant marine conventions.
