Each year, the officers from each committee develop the country matrix, which is a

compilation of essential data from all countries in a committee. The officers build this matrix
in the hopes that you will be able to use it to find countries with similar positions or ideas,
further enhancing debate and giving you a chance to work with a country you may not have
expected to align with during your time in conference.
The following are brief explanations of the information contained in this binder:

Human Trafficking tier ranking : This index measures the ranking of each country in
terms of the prominence of trafficking and the amount of people trafficked each year

department of State under John "Kerry. Factors such as trafficking population, owners
of modern slaves, and government intervention all shape the tier ranking.
WHO World Healthcare System Ranking: This ranking, conducted by the World Health
Organization, ranks registered countries overall based on healthcare system (two-tier

on the countries dependence, economic and otherwise, on its urban centers as the
country develops. Rate of Urbanization takes into account the rate at which people,

If a countrys indicator says N/A, it means that there was no data available for that
country on the index.
