The ratings are based on a scale of 1 to 7, with 7 representing the highest level of democratic progress and 1 the lowest. The Democracy Score is an average of ratings for the categories tracked in a given year. The Democracy Percentage, introduced in 2020, is a translation of the Democracy Score to the 0-100 scale, where 0 equals least democratic and 100 equals most democratic. See the methodology.

header1 Score changes in 2023

  • Civil Society rating improved from 4.50 to 4.75 due to the incremental improvements in investigative journalism leading to criminal probes and political change, success by media outlets in court over freedom of information cases, and the Government’s decriminalization of the “grave insults” law.
  • Independent Media rating improved from 2.75 to 3.00 due to the increased involvement of civil society organizations in state decision and policy making processes, the influence civil society has demonstrated in effecting changes to state policies, and the institutionalized relationship between civil society organizations and branches of government.

As a result, Armenia’s Democracy Score improved from 3.04 to 3.11.
