Transparency International’s 2011 Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI) has just been released, and reveals that corruption around the world remains deeply entrenched – especially on the African continent.

From Transparency International:

The 2011 corruption perceptions index measures the perceived levels of public sector corruption in 183 countries and territories around the world. It is a composite index, a combination of polls, drawing on corruption-related data collected by a variety of reputable institutions. The CPI reflects the views of observers from around the world, including experts living and working in the countries/territories evaluated.

Afghanistan and Myanmar share second to last place with a score of 1.5, while Somalia and North Korea come in last with a score of 1.

New Zealand is perceived as the country with the least corruption with a score of 9.5; while Denmark, Finland, Sweden and Singapore all come in the top five.
