World Justice Project Rule of Law Index 2014

Survey of 99 Countries on Government, Accountability, Crime, Fundamental Rights, and Access to Justice and More ranks New Zealand 6th.

The Index released 5 March 2014 relies on over 100,000 household and 2,400 expert surveys to measure
how the rule of law is experienced in everyday life around the world. Adherence is assessed using 47 indicators organized
around eight themes: constraints on government powers, absence of corruption, open government, fundamental rights, order and security, regulatory enforcement, civil justice, and criminal justice. More than 500 variables are computed to produce these indicators for every country.
