Press Freedom Index 2014 / Reporters Without Borders
- New Zealand
46. United States
148. Russian Federation
Methodology: A score and a position are assigned to each country in the final ranking. They are complementary indicators that together assess the state of press freedom. In order to make the index more informative and make it easier to compare different years, scores will henceforth range from 0 to 100, with 0 being the best possible score and 100 the worst. The index does not look at human rights violations in general, just violations of freedom of information.
