The Freedom of Thought Report uses 59 positive “boundary conditions”. These are statements against which countries can be assessed. (A handful of further 'null' statements indicate the absence of positive conditions in the same thematic strand.)
9
Each boundary condition fits under one of four thematic strands: Constitution and Government; Education and Children's Rights; Family, Society and Community; and Freedom of Expression and Advocacy of Humanist Values.
10
Throughout the Report and the data there are five "severity levels". For convenience in the data they are specified according to five numbers: 1 ("Free and equal") up to 5 (most serious). (0 indicates a null statement in a given strand.)

12
"Worst status by strand" lists countries from the Report against the four thematic strands of the report, with a value corresponding to the worst severity of any boundary condition applied in that strand.
13
14
"All bounday conditions" lists countries from the Report against every possible boundary condition in the Report, clustered under each thematic strand.
15
16
"Thought Crimes status" uses the individual boundary conditions applied to display a very simplified summary of the possible sentences on statues under laws against "blasphemy" or "apostasy" or closely related laws.
17
The Thought Crimes Status column in this table shows whichever is the worst possible punishment for either "blasphemy" or "apostasy" or closely related laws.
18
19
"Numerical Index" shows how we calculate the rankings for each country, by taking the ratings (applied boundary conditions), assigning a value according to the severity of applied conditions, and then sorting each country into a consecutive rank file based on its total, weighted score.
20
"Multiplication factors" determines the "weight" of the conditions at each severity level by specifying a "multiplier" to the value of each condition applied, feeding into the Numerical Index.
