Most And Least Corrupt Countries

A few weeks ago, we at MapsofWorld had featured a unique Infographic – Can Corruption Ever Be Eliminated? Over the past century, corruption has been cited as one of the chief evils that have been ailing countries, corporations, and other organizations. The chief import of corruption in government and governmental agencies is financial and economic. The social and moral aspects of corruption cannot be ignored either.

London-based non-profit, Transparency International has been publishing Corruption Perception Index – a ranking of 174 different countries since 1995. These rankings are awarded “by their perceived levels of corruption, as determined by expert assessments and opinion surveys”. These rankings are based on the scores from 0 (most corrupt) to 10 (least corrupt) awarded by Transparency International. The organization helps fight corruption in many countries of the world and has more than 100 chapters in different parts of the globe. Apart from grading the countries based on the corruption perception, Transparency International also helps in anti-corruption awareness and legal assistance.

Recently Transparency International released their Corruption Perception Index for the Year 2012. So we decided to bring you the list of countries perceived to least corrupt this year –
