This is from a link a colleague forwarded.  A group called Freedom House has just completed a ‘Freedom in the World 2010‘ survey.  Here are a couple of graphs from their work:

The graphs show, (1) the number of democracies in the world today are the least since 1996, and (2) the percentage of electoral democracies in the world is the least since 1995.  India thankfully, does not show a slip in the rankings, but neither does it show an increase.
