Freedom House's Freedom on the Net Index


Freedom House’s Freedom on the Net Index (FNI) features a ranked, country-bycountry assessment of online freedom, a global overview of the latest developments, and in-depth country reports. The information below was compiled from responses to AidData’s 2016 GDA Snap Poll, which asked public, private and civil society leaders to answer 11 questions about whether, when, and why they use governance data in their work. A total of 73 participants to the snap poll indicated familiarity with the FNI.
