Freedom House (FH) is a International non-governmental organization whose main activities are research and study in the field of political freedoms and human rights and the dissemination of information regarding their effective compliance.
Every year, FH studies and investigates the realities of every country in the world, including those not officially recognized and the disputed territories, and publishes the results of these researches in the form of reports.
La main of these publications is an annual report entitled Freedom in the world which analyzes and classifies the degree of tightness and protection of two factors: Political Rights and Civil liberties, to define the country for each country state of liberty level in a special "Aggregated ranking".
The measurement is based on twenty five "indicators", that is, fields of investigation taken into consideration for each country / territory: a score ranging from 0 to 4. This allows you to have an overall evaluation ("aggregate score") in which the maximum score is equal to 100. In this way it is possible to "label" each reality according to the classifications used by FH: Free, Partly free, Not free (free, partially free, not free).
