The Austrian Association for Democracy, which is free of political partisanship, has issued its annual ranking of the quality of democracy, based on 104 countries assumed to be either free or partly free.  The top ten nations included nine European countries and New Zealand. 

The data is drawn from organisations such as Amnesty International, Freedom House, and others.  In order to be included in the rankings, a country has to have a population of at least one million people.

The rankings are based on economics, civil rights, gender equality, health, environment, and other indicators. 

The United States was ranked 15th, down from 14th last year.

I'll be sure to add this one rank decline to my list of profound concerns. Wouldn't want to deprive such a momentous occurrence of any acknowledgment due it.

If Norway is the top, then there is something wrong with the survey.
