Caribbean: Economic freedom index, 5-year change
Increased economic freedom is strongly associated with high GDP growth, and therefore with rises in residential property prices. Changes in a countrys score on the Heritage Foundations freedom index are calculated by the Global Property Guide to produce a 5-point rating:
- Greatly Improved
- Much Worse

Statistics for the Caribbean. Statistical work in the Caribbean is weak, and house price statistics are almost non-existent. The partial exception is the US Virgin Islands, which benefits from a multiple listings system.
