Global anti-corruption coalition, Transparency International, releases an annual list which ranks the perceived amount of corruption in each country around the world. The Corruption Perceptions Index, is a great way to find out which countries people generally think are the most corrupt.
Transparency International explains that there is no hard-and-fast way “to assess absolute levels of corruption in countries or territories on the basis of hard empirical data.”
However, the organization uses various factors and studies various corruption studies to provide us with a decent measure of corruption.
Not surprisingly, most of the top corrupt countries on the list are in Africa and the Middle East.
Instead of focus our list on the most corrupt countries in every region, we focused on the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD).
We chose the most talked about and well-known countries and ranked them based on their level of corruption.
A score of 100 means there is no corruption in the country while a score of 1 would represent almost absolutely corruption.
