The problem of corruption is nothing new, but even to this day, its consequences are more disastrous than ever. Whether by weakening school infrastructures, expanding the illegal traffic of counterfeit medicine, or allowing fraudulent political decisions supported with bribes, not only does it diminish the foundations of modern society but also seriously affects the public's trust towards its leaders. You will be surprised to see how even the countries commonly viewed as the most exemplary are not as clean as you might think.

The Corruption Perceptions Index ranks countries and territories based on how corrupt their public sector is perceived to be. A country or territory's score indicates the perceived level of public sector corruption on a scale of 0 (highly corrupt) to 100 (very clean). A country or territory's rank indicates its position relative to the other countries and territories in the index. This year's index includes 175 countries and territories. Click on the column headings to sort the results, or use the drop-down menu to view results by region. Note that N/A means a country was not included in the index during a particular year.
