According to the specific literature, the national and international statistics for ranking countries (regions) we use the ranking method. The ranking method has the advantage that the hierarchy of territorial units can use local variables expressed in absolute values, no matter the structure or the intensity. Territorial units are complex statistical units in which the variable values are obtained either by aggregation or as relative values based on a report, either as medium measures. Being partial synthetic values calculated at the local level it is almost impossible to know the analytical function expressing the shape and intensity of the relationship that shaped distribution by regions within each region to be in the same relation of interdependence.
