Analytics for All Matching Laws Individual Results in Search Engine »

Methodology Notes:

The graphs on this page include all laws that match the search query. To see the exact laws included, use this link to search Global-Regulation.com. Laws were sourced exclusively from the national legislative portals. Some laws are translated into English using a combination of the commercial Google & Microsoft translation services. PDF laws are converted to text before analysis. The laws available depend on the digitization efforts of each country and are heavily weighted towards post-1990 laws. State/provincial laws are merged into the national results for Canada & the US. A complete description of the coverage is provided here.

Feature Note:

Methodology Notes:

The above graph shows the percentage of each country's laws that matched the search. Not all of any given country's laws are available but in most cases the laws in our system are a fair sample of recent laws for the given jurisdiction.

Methodology Notes:

The above graph provides a ballpark estimate of each jurisdiction's regulatory complexity for the given search. Page counts have been normalized by dividing the total number of words by 250.

Methodology Notes:

The above heatmap groups laws into categories. The x-axis is grouped according to the ratio of the mean number of words in laws matching the given search and the mean overall for the given country. The y-axis shows the number of laws that match the search.

Feature Note:

The heatmap cannot be downloaded as an image.

Methodology Notes:

United States federal & state laws are omitted from the above graph because codified laws make publication dates difficult to ascertain. Countries with less than 10 laws (with known publication years) matching the search are not shown.
