Note on above 2 tables: The Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI) defines corruption as the abuse of public office for private gain and measures the degree to which corruption is perceived to exist among a country's public officials and politicians. It is a composite index, drawing on 13 different expert and business surveys. The scores range from 100 (‘very clean’) to zero (‘highly corrupt’). A score of 50 is the number Transparency International considers the borderline figure distinguishing countries that do and do not have a serious corruption problem.
