Financial globalization has increased the significance of methods used in the evaluation of country risk, one of the major research topics in economics and finance. Written by experts in the fields of multicriteria methodology, credit risk assessment, operations research, and financial management, this book develops a comprehensive framework for evaluating models based on several classification techniques that emerge from different theoretical directions. This book compares different statistical and data mining techniques, noting the advantages of each method, and introduces new multicriteria methodologies that are important to country risk modeling. This work is a useful toolkit for economists, financial managers, bank managers, operations researchers, management scientists, and risk analysts. Moreover, the book can also be used as a supplementary textbook for graduate courses in finance and financial risk management.

"Health outcomes constitute one natural starting point for assessment of the consequences of policies affecting health systems. Yet country characteristics also influence health outcomes." Performance on health outcomes is critical for human welfare, and, until now, country decisionmakers and policy analysts have had no systematic way to judge performance. This report provides them with that capacity. This report contains the results for 15 countries at five-year intervals from 1960 to 1990 on six health indicators: under-five mortality rates, total fertility rates, adult mortality rates for males and females, and life expectancy at birth for males and females. In this report, the authors take aspects of health system performance and describe how countries compare with each other and how their own performance has improved or failed to improve over time. The goal of the study is to prepare a reference document that provides measures that can be used to assess the consequences of policy. Part of the Health, Nutrition, and Population Series (HNP).
