Political conditions, as one of the most important factors affecting all aspects of the country, have been the focus of researchers for years. Political stability as a multidimensional issue can be examined from different aspects. The basic challenge of this research is to investigate what the concept of political stability is and comprehensively identify its related components using data mining methods. For this purpose, in this study, the similarity of the political stability index and the indicators presented in the World Bank for the two regions of the Caucasus countries and the OECD have been measured and compared. The time interval of these time series is from 2000-2020. Among the first 30 variables with the highest degree of similarity to the political stability index in the Caucasus region, economic variables have the largest number. This is while in the OECD countries, population, health and environmental indicators have taken the first ranks. Based on the obtained results, due to the geopolitical differences of the two regions, these factors are different in the two regions.
