Media advisory: Transparency International to publish USA corruption poll on 12 December 2017

Transparency International will release the results of a public opinion poll about people’s perceptions of corruption in the USA on Tuesday, 12 December 2017 at 6am EST.

The survey asks the public to rate the government's performance in tackling corruption, whether corruption has increased or declined in the previous year, and what they as citizens can do to combat corruption.

The survey also looks at which key groups and influencers - from the White House and Congress to the police and religious leaders - are considered most corrupt.
