Media Advisory: Launch of the 2006 Global Corruption Barometer

In advance of the 3rd International Anti-Corruption Day on Saturday, 9 December, Transparency International will present the results of a public opinion survey of corruption in 62 countries.

The 2006 Global Corruption Barometer, now in its fourth edition, looks at the form and extent of corruption through the eyes of ordinary citizens around the world. It is based on a poll of nearly 60,000 people carried out by Gallup International.
