Market Comparisons

What are the fundamental factors that define national postal markets for household consumers and small businesses? The Index of Postal Freedom evaluates elements including quality of service, the range of choices and competition, pricing, and the level of modernization that consumers can expect from their national posts. Each of these factors is analyzed in the Index's profiles of individual countries. The Index's Market Comparisons provide snapshot views of these indicators across countries, and show how markets, and the service that consumers receive, compare around the world.
