Last Year's Democracy Percentage & Status
77 100 Consolidated Democracy
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.

Score changes in 2021:

  • National Democratic Governance: This rating declined from 5.00 to 4.75 due to the continued failure of the political leadership to address Prime Minister Andrej Babiš’ conflicts of interest as well as the government’s chaotic response to the second wave of COVID-19 in the fall.
  • Local Democratic Governance: This rating declined from 6.25 to 6.00 to reflect the inability of regional governments to effectively confront the COVID-19 crisis along with fiscal reforms that could leave regional governments underfinanced.
