  19. 19. AjointinitiativeoftheOECDandtheEuropeanUnion, principallyfinancedbytheEU What the Methodological Annex includes • A list of indicators that can be used to support analysis and monitoring:  All indicators include descriptions that guide their application  There are both qualitative and quantitative indicators • An overview of potential sources of information • A methodological guide for analysis 18
