Rating - Grade Differences by Countries


The table indicates how strong players' grades are in various countries.

The columns denoted by   show
ARGD (Average of Rating - Grade Difference)   the average difference between the actual GoRating and the GoR value corresponding to the grade of players (e. g., 1 dan with GoR = 2138 means ARGD = 38).
NP (Number of Players)   the numbers of players included in the database (only players appearing in current rating ladders are counted).
ANT (Average Number of Tournaments)   the average of number of tournaments over the sample of players from a given country.
Country   the countries, ordered according to their internet codes. We also included some countries which are not in Europe geographically (AM = Armenia, IL = Israel).
