How about clustering on slope, rather than level? I see two or three very different clusters in that case...

With only 2 time points, why not do a scatterplot?

Robert just always have a plotting program nearby. Usually for bivariate data, I'd prefer a scatter plot. But when I look at Robert's plot here, the data is correlated in such a way that nothing stands out. The between-country variations appear to be much larger than the within-country variations.

I've written some SAS/Graph code to produce a chart like the oririginal bar chart, if anyone would like to grab a copy and experiment with it ...
