These are defined broadly and include: measures of freedom and democracy in government; market freedom; public management, the rule of law and socioeconomic indicators. The site pulls together information from a variety of different sources to enable rapid comparison. 

Sources include:

  • Freedom House indicators,
  • Heritage Foundation Index of Economic Freedom 
  • UNDP Human Development reports.

Datasets can be downloaded in excel format.
