Measuring international corruption and its impacts

February 2015

Since 1995, Transparency International, an international non-government organisation, has been monitoring global corporate and political corruption in international development

Measuring International Corruption and its Impacts

What is the Corruption Perceptions Index?

Since 1995, Transparency International, an international non-government organisation, has been monitoring global corporate and political corruption in international development. Every year it produces its Corruption Perceptions Index in which it ranks a total of 175 countries on the degree of transparency and legality there is in their use of public funds. These rankings are decided by a large body of independent institutions specialising in international governance and business practices. They use a series of indicators and observances to place numerical values against each country.
