Below I present a simple study I made of the UN General Assembly and its recent vote on the Goldstone report. I'm interested in what you make out of the information.

Last week, the UN General Assembly voted on a resolution endorsing the Goldstone report. 18 countries voted against it (A), 44 abstained (B), and 114 countries voted for the resolution (C). Of the 114 countries that voted for the resolution, 68% are considered "partly free" or "not free" by the 2009 World Freedom Index. Only one (Macedonia) of the 18 countries that voted against the resolution is considered "partly free" by the same index.

Below are 3 pie graphs representing the 3 voter subsections I mentioned above. I first posted them on my blog here. The 1-7 scale is the Index's score range. 1 - 2.5 is considered free, 3-5 partly free, and 5.5 - 7 is not free.

If you want to see the stats the graphs above are based on, email me and I'll send you the excel sheets.
