              Notes and Clarifications
              The table above lists all country scores for the Asia-Pacific region since the annual Freedom in the World survey was first compiled for the year 1972.

              Methodological changes have been effected periodically. For discussions of these changes, please consult the methodology essays for various editions of the survey.
              For a full explanation of the current methodology, please consult the most recent edition of the survey.


              "PR" stands for "Political Rights," "CL" stands for "Civil Liberties," and "Status" is the Freedom Status.


              Political Rights and Civil Liberties are measured on a one-to-seven scale, with one representing the highest degree of Freedom and seven the lowest.


              “F,” “PF,” and “NF,” respectively, stand for “Free,” “Partly Free,” and “Not Free.”


              Until 2003, countries whose combined average ratings for Political Rights and for Civil Liberties fell between 1.0 and 2.5 were designated "Free"; between 3.0 and 5.5 “Partly Free," and between 5.5 and 7.0 “Not Free.”
              Beginning with the ratings for 2003, countries whose combined average ratings fall between 3.0 and 5.0 are "Partly Free," and those between 5.5 and 7.0 are "Not Free."


              Ratings for territories are not included in this table.


              Several countries became independent, split into two or more countries, or merged with a neighboring state. Scores for these countries are given only for the period of their existence as independent states.


              * These refer to the various editions of Freedom in the World , except for Jan.-Feb. 1973 through Jan.-Feb. 1977, which are from the bimonthly journal Freedom at Issue.
              The first Freedom in the World book-length survey was the 1978 edition.

              The former Western Samoa is listed under Samoa.
