Transparency International’s Corruption Perceptions Index 2018

Transparency International has released its Corruption Perceptions Index 2018. The index, which ranks 180 countries and territories by their perceived levels of public sector corruption according to experts and businesspeople, uses a scale of 0 to 100, where 0 is highly corrupt and 100 is very clean. More than two-thirds of countries score below 50 on this year’s CPI, with an average score of just 43.

Denmark, the country with the lowest measured corruption, scored an 88 and Somalia received the highest ranking with a score of 10. The report gave the US a score of 71 for 2018 and a global ranking of 22, down from a 75 score and 16th ranking in 2017.
