Corruption is a problem worldwide, but how bad is it? And what can be done? Transparency International’s Corruption Perceptions Index seeks to help answer these questions.
The CPI ranks countries/territories based on how corrupt their public sector is perceived to be. It is a composite index, a combination of polls, drawing on corruption-related data collected by a variety of reputable institutions. The CPI reflects the views of observers from around the world, including experts living and working in the countries/territories evaluated.
