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.

header1 Score changes in 2022

  • Local Democratic Governance rating improved from 4.25 to 4.50 because the new leaders of Split and Zagreb move to bring good government to these cities, in a break with past patterns of municipal governance.
  • Corruption rating declined from 3.75 to 3.50 to reflect the growing number of national and local-level scandals, often uncovered by domestic media, that have resulted in zero indictments by the prosecutor’s office—while the government continues to pay lip service to the fight against corruption, and corrupt officials continue to be reelected.

As a result, Croatia’s Democracy Score remained unchanged.
