The globalEDGE team is excited to introduce a new resource that has been added to the site. The International Property Rights Index 2014 is an economic index study on the correlation between economic success and property rights. The study includes physical and intellectual property rights data for 94 countries. There has been ever increasing evidence of the strong correlation between economic freedom and the protection of property rights, and The 2014 International Property Rights Index demonstrates this correlation. Developing countries tend to struggle with individual property rights, while developed countries lead the way with intellectual and physical property rights. Individually, country rankings can be found in the indices section of the country pages. The complete list of data can be found by gaining access to The Database of International Business Statistics (DIBS).
