Note: In the graph, change towards progress is shown in the positive direction to make comparisons easier. For example, unemployment fell between 1998 and 2008 and is therefore plotted in the positive direction. Victims of personal crime rose between 1998 and 2005 and is plotted in the negative direction. Similarly, for land clearing (an indicator of biodiversity) the total area of land cleared per year increased between 1995 and 2005 (negative direction) while the annual area of forest conversion fell (positive direction).
