“But we need other indicators, as there are so small country that if one, for example, the player will leave and will receive a very large salary, it will change the rate of the entire state, she said. — Therefore, we also analyzed the criterion of the weakness of human resources based on indicators of nutrition, health, education and adult literacy and criterion of economic vulnerability, i.e. the exposure to climate, agricultural, economic, and other disasters.”
