IMF researchers used ICRG’s composite risk scores as the main proxy for overall country risk, finding that countries participating in IMF-supported lending programs are significantly less likely to experience a future banking crisis than non-borrowing countries, and that compliance with conditionality and loan size matter. See “IMF Lending and Banking Crises,” Luca Papi, Andrea F. Presbitero and Alberto Zazzaro, IMF Working Paper (15/19), Jan. 2015.
Below is a sample of the data utilized, taken from the full data table covering 140 countries:
TABLE 1 – COUNTRY RISK, RANKED BY COMPOSITE RISK RATING
(February 2017 versus March 2016)
|Rank in 02/17||Country||Composite Risk Rating 02/17||Composite Risk Rating 03/16||02/17 versus 03/16||Rank in 03/16|
|Very Low Risk|
|Very High Risk|
