From its inception in 1979, the Report has furnished specific competitive information on the world's key economies, presented as two-page profiles for each economy. These profiles provide: major performance indicators; each economy's rank in competitiveness; and highlights of particular strengths and weaknesses. In addition, the Report presents rankings on major macroeconomic indicators, and rankings on a large number of variables within defined "factors": major economic indicators, openness, government, finance, infrastructure, technology, management, labor, civil institutions, and various supplementary issues. The Report provides the reader with country rankings for each of the variables. Examples of variables include: "Burden of Regulation", "Composition of Public Spending", "Infrastructure Spending", "Competence of Public Officials", "Recession Expectations".
