The indicators of aid selectivity proposed by Sylviane Guillaumont-Jeanneney and Gwénolé Le Velly are based on the idea that the quality of economic policies of aid recipient countries should not be the unique criterion to assess the quality of aid allocation from donor countries. Aid selectivity is measured by: 1. a geographical allocation of aid giving preference to good governance, 2. poverty, 3. structural vulnerability, 4. lack of human capital in recipient countries.
The indicators of aid selectivity for each donor country are then computed as average profiles of recipient countries of its aid regarding the four criteria. Following the 2011 update, these indicators are now available over the period 2003-2009.
