Corruption Perceptions Index 2019Produced by Transparency International, the Corruption Perceptions Index has become the leading global indicator of public sector corruption. The 2019 edition is based on 13 surveys and expert assessments to measure public sector corruption in 180 countries and territories, giving each as score from zero (highly corrupt) to 100 (very clean).

With a score of 87, New Zealand and Denmark share the first place in the 2019 ranking, followed by Finland. Luxembourg shares the 9th place with Germany. Both countries receive a score of 80.

The overall picture of global corruption drawn by the report is not very positive, as it claims that “a staggering number of countries are showing little to no improvement in tackling corruption. Our analysis also suggests that reducing big money in politics and promoting inclusive political decision-making are essential to curb corruption.”
