Country rankings guide

A list of country rankings based on indicators that try to measure different characteristics of countries around the world. Most of these rankings are ongoing and recurring. Be careful when using these indexes because they often measure qualities that are difficult to quantify. Moreover, methodologies often change year to year; therefore, multiyear comparisons are often invalid. For these reasons, it is important to know the methodologies used to derive these cross country comparisons. Most of the indexes included provide their methodology. Topics of ranking include Civil Liberties, Corruption, Development, Economic, Environment, Gender, Governance and Political, Press Freedom, and Social.
