./. = High-income countries of the OECD and the euroarea

0 = negligible risk

1 = Low risk

7 = particularly high risk

The country risk is assessed for each country once a year on OECD level. Using a macro-economic model the states are classified in one of eight risk categories. These country risk classifications are binding on all OECD member states. Under this system countries in Risk Category 1 involve a low risk and countries with a particularly high risk are classified in Risk Category 7. The calculation for countries that are not classified is based on a market test.

High-income countries of the OECD and the euroarea, which are not classified by the OECD with regard to their risk: Australia, Norway, the United States and Eurozone countries.
