Global Corruption Barometer 2013

The Global Corruption Barometer 2013 is a  yearly publication of the NGO, Transparency International. Based on a survey of 114,000 people in 107 countries, it shows that corruption is still widespread and remains a serious issue. Among the surveyed, 27% of respondents admitted to have paid a bribe when accessing public services and institutions in the last 12 months, revealing no improvement from previous surveys.

90% of people surveyed said they would act against corruption and two-thirds of those who were asked to pay a bribe had refused, suggesting that governments, civil society and the business sector need to do more to engage people in thwarting corruption.

The report shows that in many countries, there's a mistrust towards the institutions mandated to fight corruption. 36 countries view police as the most corrupt institution, and in those countries an average of 53% of people had been asked to pay a bribe to the police. 20 countries view the judiciary as the most corrupt, and in those countries an average of 30% of the people who had come in contact with the judicial systems had been asked to pay a bribe.

The report is available online, here
