Rule of Law: Number of Sources

sourceNote
Rule of Law captures perceptions of the extent to which agents have confidence in and abide by the rules of society, and in particular the quality of contract enforcement, property rights, the police, and the courts, as well as the likelihood of crime and violence. Number of sources indicates the number of underlying data sources on which the aggregate estimate is based.
