Transparency International: Corruption Perceptions Index, December 2013

Subject: Corruption

For the second year running, Afghanistan scores joint lowest in the world in Transparency International's (TI) annual Index of corruption perception.  In their launch statement, TI commented "Despite 2013 being a year in which governments around the world passed new laws and forged fresh commitments to end corruption, people are not seeing the results of these promises."

The Corruption Perceptions Index ranks countries and territories based on how corrupt their public sector is perceived to be. A country or territory’s score indicates the perceived level of public sector corruption on a scale of 0 - 100, where 0 means that a country is perceived as highly corrupt and 100 means it is perceived as very clean. A country's rank indicates its position relative to the other countries and territories included in the index.   The Technical Methodology document is attached, along with the Index results brochure.
