Score of American Freedom by States [Report 2021]

Freedom Rating produces annual scores representing the levels of political rights and civil liberties in each state and territory, on a scale from 1 (most free) to 7 (least free). Raymond Gartil launched it in 1973, which determined the freedom of the nation as “Free”, “Partly Free”, “Not Free”. In the United States, democracy strongly correlates with freedom.

According to The Human Freedom Index, the US dropped to rank 15 in 2019. It is measured by Economist Intelligence Unit’s Democracy Index and the Freedom Index. The Freedom House assesses the condition of a country’s political liberties and civil rights to indicate Freedom By States.

With a strong rule-of-law tradition, vibrant political system, robust freedom of expression, religious beliefs, and other civil liberties, the United States is a federal republic. Though, in recent years it suffers in freedom rating because of partisan manipulation of the electoral process, dysfunction in the justice system, flawed policies for immigrants, and other sectors. After the election in 2020, the US is now coming back to its old justified system and starting a new road to freedom.
