NOTES

The above rankings were last updated on February 28, 2019, and are based on the most recent Credibility Score Reports and Annual Audit Reports issued as of the end of 2018. 

The media of Kazakhstan are a set of public information transfer agencies in the Republic of Kazakhstan. While the Constitution of Kazakhstan guarantees freedom of press, privately owned and opposition media have been subject to significant censorship. In 2004 the International Federation of Journalists identified a "growing pattern" of intimidation of the media, and in 2012 several opposition media outlets were ordered to be shut down on charges of promoting "extremism". All media must register with the Ministry of Culture, Information and Sports.  Reporters Without Borders' 2018 Press Freedom Index ranked Kazakhstan 158th out of 180 countries surveyed.
