The 2014-15 Web Index

December 11, 2014

The Web Index is the world’s first measure of the World Wide Web’s contribution to social, economic and political progress in countries across the world.

The 2014-15 edition of the Web Foundation’s annual Web Index examines key Web issues — including privacy, censorship, gender-based violence, equality and, for the first time ever, net neutrality — across 86 countries, and scores each country in the areas of access, freedom and openness, relevant content, and empowerment.

To see our full set of recommendations, read the 2014-15 Web Index report, and explore all data from this year’s Index, as well as a number of exciting visualisations, please visit or download the report PDF.
