The Corruption Perception Index (CPI) ranks countries and territories based on how corrupt their public sectors are perceived to be. The score of a country or territory reflects the perceived level of corruption in the public sector on a scale of 0 to 100, where a 0 indicates that a country is perceived as highly corrupt whereas a 100 means that it is perceived as very transparent. A country’s rank indicates its position relative to the other countries and territories ranked in the index. 177 countries and territories were included in the index in 2013. It is a composite index – a combination of surveys and assessments of corruption, collected by a variety of respectable institutions.
