Data for: SAFE 2019: Updates and new sustainability findings worldwide
The SAFE model (Sustainability Assessment by Fuzzy Evaluation, http://www.sustainability.tuc.gr/) estimates the the overall sustainability of countries using relevant indicator data. The files (compressed, tab-delimited text) contain data on 69 sustainability indicators for 164 countries from 1990 to 2016. Three data sets are provided: 1) raw data as time series (810 out of a total of 69x164=11,316 time series are missing); 2) time series transformed into single values and normalized on a 0-1 scale from unsustainable to sustainable; 3) SAFE model inputs: a data set in which most of the missing values are imputed; for some countries certain indicators are intentionally omitted, estimated, or modified as explained in the article. Third-party sources of raw data are given in the article's supplementary Appendix E.
