How are the scores calculated and what do they represent?
Scores are shown in percentages, representing the proportion of direct participation structure of civil society in urban planning and management that operate regularly and democratically in the city, based on citizen's perceptions. These are calculated based on the average of the respondent's answers, using a 4-point Likert scale.
Preliminary city scores are shown in a dash-bordered box on each city’s information popup. These constitute an average of all respondents’ scores for that city. Official scores (solid bordered box) are only shown when at least one person from each sector (government, civil society, academia, private sector and professional body) has responded to the survey, to guarantee representation.
The results will be analysed and compiled into the SDG Progress Report.
