Steps to reproduce

The index was constructed in four steps: selection of index subdimensions; data normalization; weighting and aggregation; and robustness check and sensitivity analysis (Nardo and Saisana, 2008; Saltelli, 2007). The obtained index was rescaled from 1 to 100, where 100 signifies the highest opposition and 1 the lowest. The data were collected and analyzed using Stata 16.1. To ensure the robustness of the analysis and maximize the policy angles, we developed five different versions of the index
