Chart Summary of 2 Studies Examining this Question

All labels are assigned by State of K. "Mixed" means that a study found some evidence to indicate that the answer to the question is "yes" and some evidence to indicate that the answer is "no". "Insuff. Evidence" means that a study found there was insufficient evidence to reach a conclusion regarding the question. "No Data" means that State of K wasn't able to identify the study's response to the question based on the information we had available to us. "Highly Regarded Source", as applied to journals, is a label assigned to the top 20 journals (as measured by the h-index) in various subcategories as classified and reported by Google Scholar. As applied to NGOs, the label is assigned to US NGOs ranked by the TTCSP Global Go To Think Tank Index Reports. The information contained in a source that is labelled "highly regarded" is not necessarily more accurate than information contained in a source without that label.
