Global Corruption Barometer 2015/16

Over the course of 2016, we'll release a Global Corruption Barometer accompanied by five regional surveys. These studies track peoples' experience of corruption in their countries and reveal regional trends. The first of the series – for Sub-Saharan Africa – was released in autumn 2015. The remaining surveys – for Americas, Asia Pacific, Europe and Central Asia, and the Middle East and North Africa – are forthcoming.

Europe and Central Asia 2016

For this latest Europe and Central Asia edition of the Global Corruption Barometer, we spoke to nearly 60,000 people across 42 countries in Europe and Central Asia via face to face and telephone surveys about the current state of public sector graft. Read our news feature about their findings.

Middle East and North Africa survey 2016

In this latest Middle East and North Africa edition of the Global Corruption Barometer we find that 50 million adults in the region are having to pay bribes to access the basic services that they need. This is one of the findings from our survey, which aims to give a voice to ordinary citizens' views and experiences of corruption and help hold governments to account for their actions – or lack thereof – at stopping public sector graft. For the survey we are in partnership with the Afrobarometer and several national partners of the Arab Barometer network, which spoke to 10,797 adult respondents from September 2014 to November 2015 in nine countries and territories: Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Palestine, Sudan, Tunisia and Yemen. Read our news feature on the findings.
