Based on the Study for Mercatus Center at George Mason University

The State Freedom Calculator is a desktop application based on the study by Jason Sorens and William P. Ruger for Mercatus Center at George Mason University. The authors of the original study have done an outstanding job collecting and organizing more than 300 figures and statistics for each State. In addition, they have compiled, adjusted and weighted the data to yield an impressive list of States in their order of freeness.

Use the State Freedom Calculator to modify the original study parameters and personalize the State Result List. There are more than 126 different "freedoms" that you can prioritize according to your tastes. You can also view the raw data for State specific law and policy.
