Economic Freedom of North America 2020
Economic Freedom of North America 2020 is the sixteenth edition of the Fraser Institute’s annual report. It measures the extent to which in 2018 — the year with the most recent available comprehensive data — the policies of individual provinces and states were supportive of economic freedom, the ability of individuals to act in the economic sphere free of undue restrictions. There are two indices: one that examines provincial/state and municipal/local governments only and another that includes federal governments as well. The former, a subnational index, is for comparison of individual jurisdictions within the same country. The latter, an all-government index, is for comparison of jurisdictions in different countries.
