The following pages present the ranks and scores of the 13 Arab World countries included in this
Report 
on all the variables composing the updated GlobalCompetitiveness Index 2007 (GCI 2007).In addition,for the sake of comparison,10 additional countriesare listed.Numbers to the left of the country namescorrespond to the ranks among the 128 economiescovered by the GCI 2007.The data are organized into nine sections,corresponding to the nine pillars of the GCI 2007:
I.InstitutionsII.InfrastructureIII.MacroeconomyIV.Health and primary educationV.Higher education and trainingVI.Market efficiencyVII.Technological readinessVIII.Business sophisticationIX.Innovation
Two types of data are used in the GCI 2007:Surveydata and hard data.
Survey data
:average responses in each country toquestions included in the World Economic Forum’sExecutive Opinion Survey,conducted in the earlymonths of 2006.
Hard data:
indicators obtained from a variety of sources.
Survey data
Data yielded from the World Economic Forum’sExecutive Opinion Survey are presented in blue-coloredbar graphs.Questions asked for responses on a scale of 1 to 7,where an answer of 1 corresponds to the lowestpossible score and an answer of 7 corresponds to thehighest possible score.For each Survey variable,theoriginal question and the two extreme answers areshown.The average score for each country—that is,thearithmetic mean of responses from each country—isreported with a precision of one decimal point,although we use exact figures to determine rankings.For example,in the case of variable 6.16 on pay andproductivity,Oman’s average score is 4.36956 andKuwait’s average score is 4.36190.These countries areranked 48th and 49th respectively,although they areboth listed with the same rounded score of 4.4.A dotted line on the graph indicates the meanscore across the sample of the 128 economies coveredby the GCI 2007—not only across the countries shownin the tables.Standard deviations are shown next to the barsrepresenting each country’s mean score.The standarddeviation indicates how closely or widely the individualresponses are spread around the mean country score.In other words,it provides information on the extentof agreement on the question within the given country.The smaller the standard deviation,the greater theconsensus among respondents.
