Supplementary notes

According to the source, the Index ranks 180 countries and regions according to the level of freedom available to journalists. It is a snapshot of the media freedom situation based on an evaluation of pluralism, independence of the media, quality of legislative framework and safety of journalists in each country and region. It does not rank public policies even if governments obviously have a major impact on their country’s ranking. Nor is it an indicator of the quality of journalism in each country or region.
* The countries surveyed were scored between 0 and 100, with 0 being the best possible result and 100 the worst, as follows:

From 0 to 15 points: Good situation
From 15.01 to 25 points: Satisfactory situation
From 25.01 to 35 points: Problematic situation
From 35.01 to 55 points: Difficult situation
From 55.01 to 100 points: Very serious situation
