What’s new on the Corruption Perception Index 2014?

Last night Transparency International released the Corruption Perceptions Index 2014.

At the first analysis of the data, there are not many surprises. However, it is worth noting that:

  • Turkey and China’s rating on perceived corruption has fallen steeply (respectively from 50 to 45 points, and from 40 to 36 points);
  • More than two thirds of the 175 countries in the index scored below 50 with Somalia, North Korea, Sudan, Afghanistan and South Sudan once again at the bottom;
  • The top performer was again Denmark with 92 points, a rise of one from last year, and New Zealand, Finland, Sweden and Norway again rounded out the top five;
  • Ukraine (26 points) remained the European country with the highest perceived level of graft.
  • Italy, Greece and Romania (43) jointly scored the worst among the European Union member states;
  • While the UK’s ranking has not changed (14), there has been an improvement in its score (from 76 to 78 points).
