Description

Transparency International's latest corruption perceptions index shows more countries declined than improved in this year's results, showing the urgent need for committed action to thwart corruption.

Over two-thirds of the 176 countries and territories in this year's index fall below the midpoint of our scale of 0 (highly corrupt) to 100 (very clean). The global average score is a paltry 43, indicating endemic corruption in a country's public sector.
