Economic Freedom of North America: 2006 Annual Report
Economic Freedom of North America rates economic freedom on a 10-point scale for two indexes. An all-government index captures the impact of restrictions on economic freedom by all levels of government (federal, state/provincial, and municipal/local). A subnational index captures the impact of restrictions by state or provincial and local governments. Economic Freedom of North America employs 10 components in three areas: 1) Size of Government; 2) Takings and Discriminatory Taxation; and 3) Labour Market Freedom.
