Yearly recovery rate
At the start of Q3, our 2022 recovery rate is 88.1%, down from 91.7% in July. This recovery rate is still performing very well, considering we are in Q3. By comparison, in July 2021, our yearly recovery rate was 42.2%—less than half of what it is currently.
This month, 2014-2018, all showed slight increases, and 2019-2022 dipped slightly, with the current year falling the most. Overall, this gives us an increase of 5 out of 9 years. 2017 still has the lowest rate, despite a slight 0.1 increase to 30.8%. And 2021 remains the completed year with the highest recovery rate (69.2%). Although, we can start to speculate that 2022 would have a higher rating once completed.
The 2014-2022 recovery rate remains solid at 50.1%.

Estonia furthered its lead, increasing from 101.4% to 107.3% in July. For 2022, Spain is still in 2nd place with 73.4%, despite dropping from 97.0%. Finland follows in 3rd place, dropping from a 75.1% recovery rating to 60.0%.
