Corruption Perception INDEX 2016

The 25th January 2017 the NGO Transparency International published its annual Corruption Perception INDEX. The main outcome for 2016 is that over two-thirds of the 176 countries and territories in the index fall below the midpoint of the scale of 0 (highly corrupt) to 100 (very clean). The global average score is a paltry 43, indicating endemic corruption especially in a country's public sector.
