Armenia By the Numbers is a look at Armenia according to important indicators that reflect a country’s economic and social development, including Gross Domestic Product (GDP), Gross National Income (GNI) per capita, Gini coefficient, Human Development Index (HDI), and emigration rate. Here, we are introducing The Armenite MEG|A Model.
The MEG|A Model is an effort to lend relevancy to the inevitable comparisons made between Armenia and other countries. Although such comparisons are commonplace, they can be incongruous or selective.
Countries will always differ in significant ways so it is important to recognize that any comparison will not take into account all possible variables and thus cannot present a complete picture of reality. Nevertheless, comparisons act as a gauge of company and trajectory – or, the group of countries among which a country finds itself and in what direction that country is going relative to others. That’s what we are trying to show here.
Finally, the figures in the infographic were taken from, or based on, third-party sources like the United Nations, World Bank, and the United States’ Central Intelligence Agency to ensure objectivity and consistent reporting.
