The Canadian Cartographic Association today points us to another interesting application of data collecting, analysis and charting.  See:

Index of Economic Freedom

Published Friday, March 10, 2006 by CCAer | E-mail this post  

Index of Economic Freedom has been published every year for the past 12
years. It assesses each country’s economic freedom by evaluating a
country’s performance on a number of factors, including trade policy,
fiscal burden, government intervention, monetary policy and property
rights, among others. Using the latest results (
available in Excel format), the index creators have also put together a map of the world (also in pdf format) that provides a quick overview of economic freedom throughout the world. Also interesting to view is a chart showing the correlation of per capita income and economic freedom. Individual country reports / analysis are also available.

The complete report, along with the methodology and process used, is available for download.
