Transparency International releases annual world corruption index
January 30, 2019

From Transparency International:

The 2018 Corruption Perceptions Index 2018 (or CPI) reveals that the continued failure of most countries to significantly control corruption is contributing to a crisis of democracy around the world. The 2018 CPI draws on 13 surveys and expert assessments to measure public sector corruption in 180 countries and territories, giving each a score from zero (highly corrupt) to 100 (very clean).
