Energy > Nuclear waste generated: Countries Compared

DEFINITION: Nuclear waste generated
Units: Standardized Scale (z-score)
Units: Two variables were initially available for Radioactive Waste: Accumulated Quantity (cubic meters) as generated and Accumulated Quantity (cubic meters) after treatment. We calculated the z-scores for the two variables, in order to make them comparable, and took whichever variable was available for each country. For the three countries (Australia, Canada and Czech Republic) which had both variables, we took the higher.

I do not understand this chart at all. What is the quantity that is reported. It cannot be cubic meters of radioactive waste, because many countries show a negative amount. Please explain
