  1. Variables E, D, and C constitute a middle group with some conditions required for them to reach their highest states. The low number of dependencies indicates that the variables, on which their highest states are conditional, are relatively low states on other variables. Finally, variables F and A are the “late-comers” that have only been observed at their highest states after a greater number of other variables reach their highest, or close to their highest, states. Together, this indicates a rough sequence that can be instructive for analysis of direct policy relevance
