Corruption Perceptions Index

The Corruption Perceptions Index of Transparency International

Corruption is a factor not to be ignored in the global economy. This is underlined by the Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI), which is published every year by Transparency International.

The CPI scores and ranks countries/territories based on how corrupt a country’s public sector is perceived to be. It is a composite index, a combination of surveys and assessments of corruption, collected by a variety of reputable institutions. The CPI is the most widely used indicator of corruption worldwide.

2016, 176 countries and territories are included in the index. A country/territory’s score indicates the perceived level of public sector corruption on a scale of 0-100, where 0 means that a country is perceived as highly corrupt and a 100 means that a country is perceived as very clean. A country's rank indicates its position relative to the other countries/territories included in the index. Ranks can change merely if the number of countries included in the index changes.

Interactive Chart

Corruption is a global problem. Hover your mouse over a country to view its score and rank.

Dark red indicates a highly corrupt public sector. Lighter red and orange countries fare a bit better, but corruption among public institutions and employees is still common. Yellow countries are perceived as cleaner, but not perfect. If a country is not featured in the ranking (white in the map), then this is solely because of insufficient survey information and not an indication that corruption does not exist in the country.

The scale of the issue is huge. Sixty-eight per cent of countries worldwide have a serious corruption problem. Half of the G20 are among them.

Not one single country, anywhere in the world, is corruption-free.
