Property Rights Index - Paraguay Compared to Latin America
Paraguay: Property rights index
A subcomponent of the Index of Economic Freedom, the property rights index measures the degree to which a countrys laws protect private property rights, and the degree to which its government enforces those laws.
Higher scores are more desirable, i.e. property rights are better protected. Scores are from 0 to 100.
The index also assesses the likelihood that private property will be expropriated and analyzes the independence of the judiciary, the existence of corruption within the judiciary, and the ability of individuals and businesses to enforce contracts.
The Global Property Guide considers protection of property rights as a significant factor affecting the desirability of a residential real estate investment.
Paraguay has no house price statistics. General statistics for Paraguay are weak. They are to be found at the Banco Central del Paraguay, in a dated site mostly providing press-release type publications, rather than time-series. The Direcci'n General de Estad'stica, Encuesta, y Censos provides census data.
