If the breadth of filtering represents the ambition of censors to limit information related to a range of topics, the depth of filtering measures the success in actually blocking content. This might correspond to the level of sophistication of the filtering regime and amount of resources devoted to the endeavor, or it may be a reflection of the resolve and political will to shut down large sections of the Internet.
