Recently Transparency International (TI) released its 2018 Corruption Perceptions Index(CPI), an annual survey which looks at the perception of corruption in 180 countries. The annual CPI has become one of the most widely recognised indicators of corruption worldwide.
The index is calculated using 13 sources that provide perceptions of public sector corruption from business people as well as country experts.
A country's rank indicates its position relative to the other countries in the index with the smaller the number of the rank the less corrupt a country is perceived to be.
A country’s score indicates the perceived level of public sector corruption on a scale of 0 (highly corrupt) to 100 (very clean). Thus the countries with higher scores rank much higher in position (as being less corrupt) compared to those with lower scores.
