Transparency International : Corruption Perception Index

It is a composite index – a combination of polls – drawing on corruption-related data collected by a variety of reputable institutions. The index reflects the views of observers from around the world, including experts living and working in the countries and territories evaluated.
Corruption Perception Index is an annual ranking of 175 countries by their perceived levels of corruption, as determined by expert assessments and opinion surveys
