Standard & Poor, Moody's, Fitch and DBRS' sovereign debt credit rating is displayed above. In addition, the Trading Economics (TE) credit rating is shown scoring the credit worthiness of a country between 100 (riskless) and 0 (likely to default). Unlike the ratings provided by the major credit agencies, our index is numerical because we believe it is easier to understand and more insightful when comparing multiple countries. Arguably, our ratings are less likely to be manipulated because they are unsolicited and we are not paid in any way to provide countries with a rating. Technically, our ratings are based on a forward looking macro economic model which takes into account several leading economic indicators, financial markets and very little discretion.
