Transparency International (TI) has published its Corruption Perception Index 2010 (CPI).
It ranks countries according to the perception of corruption in the public sector. The CPI is an aggregate indicator that combines different sources of information about corruption, making it possible to compare countries.
The 2010 CPI draws on different assessments and business opinion surveys carried out by independent and reputable institutions. It captures information about the administrative and political aspects of corruption.
The list includes 178 countries. The top ten countries where the situation with corruption is the worst include Somalia, Myanmar, Afganistan, Iraq, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Sudan, Chad and Burundi.
Followed by Eritrea and preceded by Vietnam Armenia is the 123th in the list, while Azerbaijan is the 134th. Georgia is the 68th. Turkey is the 56th in the list. In 2009 Armenia was the 120th.
The world’s less corrupted country is Denmark followed by New Zealand, Singapore, Finland, Sweden, Canada, Netherland, Australia, Switzerland and Norway.
The surveys and assessments by TI used to compile the index include questions relating to bribery of public officials, kickbacks in public procurement, embezzlement of public funds, and questions that probe the strength and effectiveness of public sector anti-corruption efforts.
