The ICRG is updated monthly. In each new issue, data and statistical tables are completely updated and new text analysis is provided for approximately 20-25 countries.
The ICRG is completely separate from the Political Risk Services line of products. The ICRG’s editor, Dr. Christopher McKee, uses a separate methodology to arrive at its political and country risk ratings. The ICRG also supplies subscribers with the methodology and formulas used to calculate the risk ratings, as well as the data needed to make the calculations. This allows clients to tailor the ratings system to their specific needs.
