El Salvador – second in the isthmus – fell four spots from last year’s ranking, to 62nd position globally, while Honduras in 140th place worldwide is last in Central America.

Norway displaced Finland as the world leader in press freedom among 180 countries. Canada placed 22nd and the U.S. 43rd, while North Korea is last.

Pluralism, security, consistent jurisprudence, and government transparency are some of the criteria used in the ranking (numbers in brackets indicate each country’s position in the global index).
