what is more telling of impending labor, effacement or dilation?

My dil is just about 40 weeks and miserable!!!!!! Her 1st was two weeks overdue and she was induced. She went to the doc today and she is 1cm and 80% effaced. Last week it was 1 cm and 50%. I was trying to cheer her up by telling her that 80% is awesome!!!!!! She has been losing her plug for the past week too in small bits.

My question is which is more telling of the progress of labor? Dilation or effacement? I have not been pregnant in four years so I am a wee bit out of the knowledge loop

Thanks mamas
