Last Year's Democracy Percentage & Status
85 100 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 6.00 to 5.75 to reflect governmental instability during the year as well as EKRE’s efforts to undermine Estonia’s response to COVID-19, including by instrumentalizing crisis legislation and elevating social issues above public health ones.

The full Nations in Transit 2021 narrative report for Estonia will be posted as soon as it becomes available.
