positive bar = no decoupling) whereas a value below 100 is means transport demand growing less rapidly than GDP (i.e. negative bar = decoupling). The EU-25 index for passenger transport demand does not include Malta, Cyprus, Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania because of lack of a complete time series in these countries. Decoupling for passenger demand also excludes the GDP of these 5 countries, together representing about 0.3%-0.4% of EU-25 GDP. See also indicator definition.
