Supplementary notes

The source did not provide the date of publication. The release date is the date the statistic was accessed.

The Economic Freedom Index was co-published by The Wall Street Journal and The Heritage Foundation and was started in 1994.

The source considers the Sub-Saharan Africa region without the North African countries as they are included in the MENA region. Therefore, the African average has been calculated by Statista based on the original data for each country. The African average includes 52 countries until 2011 and 53 countries from 2012 onwards.

The Economic Freedom Index is divided into 12 variables grouped in four categories:
1) Rule of law: property rights, judicial effectiveness, and government integrity
2) Government size: tax burden, government spending, and fiscal health
3) Regulatory efficiency: business freedom, labor freedom, and monetary freedom
4) Market openness: trade freedom, investment freedom, and financial freedom

Ranking: 100 = total economic freedom; 80–99 = free; 70.0–79.9 = mostly free; 60.0–69.9 = moderately free; 50.0–59.9= mostly unfree; 0–49.9 = repressed; 0 = no economic freedom.
