The Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI) is the leading global indicator of public sector corruption, providing an annual comparative snapshot of 180 countries and territories. The index for 2021 draws on 13 expert assessments and surveys of businesspeople.
For the first time, the CPI will offer a comprehensive look at a decade of corruption, revealing which countries have improved, regressed or stagnated over the last 10 years. Additional analysis will highlight the connection between corruption, democracy and human rights – from the lowest-scoring countries through to advanced economies.
