About this score

The reference point for Economies is that a country’s marine-related revenue must have no net loss and must keep pace with growth in GDP (or sustain losses no greater than the national decline in GDP).

Since it can be subjective to establish the optimal level of revenue for a given country to aspire to, the reference point chosen was the revenue five years prior to the current year. The goal gets a perfect score when coastal economies had no greater loss or increased faster than the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) in the last five years. A score becomes lower as relative loss in revenue increases.

The current score indicates that there had been no greater loss of revenue or Israeli revenue increased faster than the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) in the last five years.
