Using the STRI sector notes
The sector notes are two-page summaries of the STRI results for each sector. A chart presents the STRI score for each of the 40 countries together with the average score. The STRI scores are broken down on five policy areas: Restrictions on market entry conditions; Restrictions on the movement of people; Other discriminatory measures; Barriers to competition; Regulatory transparency. The sector notes also explain what drives the results and provide a brief description of the sector and the most common restrictions.
The 40 countries included in each sector note are the 34 OECD Members and Brazil, China, India, Indonesia, Russia and South Africa.
Eight new policy papers covering the 18 sectors in the STRI were published in November 2014. These papers provide an in-depth exploration and explain in detail the indices and scores for the 40 participating countries.
