The average score in the annual Index of Economic Freedom ranking 184 countries released Thursday by the Heritage Foundation and the Wall Street Journal fell to the second-lowest level in a decade.

Countries are ranked based on measures including rule of law, how open their markets are, regulatory efficiency and size of government.
