Countries Making the Biggest Moves Away, Toward Corruption Since 2019

Feb. 15, 2024
New data provides insight into which countries have gained and lost the most CPI points over the last five years.

Transparency International has released the 2023 Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI), revealing the perceived magnitude of corruption in the public sector. The countries are graded based on a scale from 0 – 100; low scores represent high corruption levels while high scores indicate less corruption.

For 2023, over two-thirds of countries score below 50, and 23 countries fell to their lowest scores to date, according to the CPI.

“Corruption will continue to thrive until justice systems can punish wrongdoing and keep governments in check. When justice is bought or politically interfered with, it is the people who suffer. Leaders should fully invest in and guarantee the independence of institutions that uphold the law and tackle corruption. It is time to end impunity for corruption,” says François Valérian, Chair of Transparency International.

Our slideshow presents which countries have drastically moved up and down the list in the last five years, and the tables below list the top and bottom 10 of 2023’s list.
