The analysis shall also evaluate predictability of outcome, i.e. examine the range of outcomes, and probabilities of obtaining median result rather than average figures only. A country-by-country analysis for all 28 Member States shall be delivered for all 28 EU Member States, and develop a robust methodology and a set of criteria which lend themselves to replication by the Commission.
