Global OHI score metadata

All years of data have been recalculated using the most up-to-date data and methods.

Scores range from 0-100, with the exception of trend data which ranges from -1 to 1. Blank cells indicate that goal is not applicable to that region.

csv file contains 7 variables

header description
scenario Year (2012 to current year)
goal Code for the OHI goal (10 goals, represented by 2 characters; and 8 subgoals, represented by 3 characters), see table below for details
long_goal Full goal/subgoal name
dimension Dimension of the OHI score that is being calculated, see table below for details
region_id Numeric identifier of the global region, includes countries and territories

Dimension Description
score Final OHI score that takes into account current status and predicted future status
status Current status of goal based on current state relative to reference state
future Predicted future status (based on contributions of pressures, resilience, and trend)
pressures Cumulative pressures acting on a goal to reduce scores, used to calculate future status
resilience Average resilience variables acting on a goal to increase scores, used to calculate future status
trend Predicted proportional change in status after five years, based on average change in status per year multiplied by five, used to estimate future status
