                                                 INTRODUCTION

The site Freedom in the World ranks the countries according to their
political freedoms and their civil rights. Particular situations such as civil wars
or guerrillas can lower a grade whenever they affect directly the freedom in that country. 
About the 1-7 type of classification : Well, when I was young and I was learning politics
and human rights, I used to consult the respectable site Freedomhouse, so I got used to
that type of classification which I have maintained in my site. 

TYPE OF CLASSIFICATION : 1- is the most free           7- is the least free.

TREND: The sign + indicates a general improvement in the freedoms, the sign - indicates
a worsening.
