Graphics Production Manual for Quarterly Road Governance Reports

Since 2007, the quarterly reports of the USAID-UEMOA Road Governance initiative present the latest status of road governance regarding three indicators – number of controls, bribes, and delays – on the corridors covered by the initiative.

Until the 14th report, these indicators were presented in tables. Beginning with the 15th report, UEMOA, the USAID West Africa Trade Hub (USAID Trade Hub) and the USAID Agribusiness and Trade Promotion project (ATP) started to use graphs to better illustrate trends in the indicators over the long term.

This document describes the methods for producing the graphs used in the quarterly reports. Unless otherwise stated, each graph is updated on a quarterly basis.
