Table 4 shows the 2021 TCS scores of each country, in rank order, with their 2019 ranking shown for comparison.
THE HEADLINE RESULTS ARE:
Two countries improved their score with 9 points or more.
Nine leading countries have 60 points or more, two have a top score of 82 out of 100 (Ireland and UK).
Eleven countries are doing reasonably well with 50 to 59 points.
The remaining 17 countries fail to score at least 50 points, so they need to do much more.
Five countries have very low scores, with fewer than 45 points.
