Every year Transparency International - the global coalition against corruption publishes Corruption Perception Index in countries around the world. Denmark and New Zealand top again with "very clean" scores over 90/100. The main reason of countries' success is strong inland corruption control.

Let's remind some basic facts about the index:

  • CPI is a business measure, addressed primarily to media and other expert people. Ordinary people are not really counted in, nor much affected by references.
  • CPI pertains exclusively to public sector corruption, leaving aside whatever happens amids private settings.
  • Up until 2012, the way CPI was constructed implied country's ranks could not be compared across time.
  • CPI methodology used 12 different data sources from 11 different institutions (one less than in 2013), and a minimum of three sources is required for a country to be included in the index.

Assessment and measurement of corruption

It is interesting that there is no relationship between actual level of corruption in the country and how people assess government's actions in the fight against corruption. In such a "clean" from corruption countries like Finland, Norway, Switzerland or Canada over 50% of respondents assess  government's actions in the fight against corruption as ineffective. Similarly people estimate their governments in much more corrupted countries like Russia, China and Brazil. One conclusion that probably could be done out of this comparison is that government's activity doesn't have much influence on the "perceived" level of corruption in countries...
