Reporters Without Borders’ Press Freedom Index for 2013

Every year, Reporters Without Borders compiles and publishes its Press Freedom Index report, which ranks press freedom in 179 countries. Rankings reflect the degree of freedom that journalists, news organizations, and citizen journalists enjoy in each country. It also takes into account measures taken by authorities to respect freedom of the press.

According to this year’s report, “Although many criteria are considered, ranging from legislation to violence against journalists, democratic countries occupy the top of the index while dictatorial countries occupy the last three positions.”
