  • Judical Effectiveness
  • Government Integrity

  • Investment Freedom
  • Financial Freedom
  • Other supporting information: Tariff Rate (%),Income Tax Rate (%),Corporate Tax Rate (%),Tax Burden % of GDP,Gov't Expenditure % of GDP ,Country,Population (Millions),"GDP (Billions, PPP)",GDP Growth Rate (%),5 Year GDP Growth Rate (%),GDP per Capita (PPP),Unemployment (%),Inflation (%),FDI Inflow (Millions),Public Debt (% of GDP)

The 12 freedom evaluation attributes are quantitative, the rank attributes are ordinal and the country name att is categorical.

There are 32 attributes in total describing the economic freedom from head to toe, which gives much room for using the dataset. Inspiration of using the dataset includes:

  • How is the economic freedom distribution around the world? Is there any region pattern?
  • Which are the top countries who have the most tax burden?
  • Is there any relationship between trade freedom and the country location? i.e. whether it is a inland country or not?
