DataSet Shadow economies all over the world: new estimates for 162 countries from 1999 to 2007
Three researchers from the World Bank have made a serious attempt to capture a country's "shadow economy" (as a percentage of GDP) for 162 countries over a 9 year period. In the paper listed below, they elucidate their methods for capturing this clandestine concept. The authors find signficant variation in the sample, as they find that developing countries have more than twice the level of a "shadow economy" of the 25 welathy, OECD countries in the sample, which they argue increases the burden of taxation and decreases the quality of public goods and services.

DataSet 2011 Bribe Payers Index
The Bribe Payers Index is a unique tool capturing the supply side of international bribery, specifically focussing on bribes paid by the private sector. The 2011 Bribe Payers Index is the fifth edition of the index, ranking 28 of the world’s largest economies according to the likelihood of firms from these countries to bribe when doing business abroad. It is based on the results of Transparency International’s 2011 Bribe Payers Survey. This asked 3,016 senior business executives in 30 countries around the world for their perceptions of the likelihood of companies, from countries they have business dealings with, to engage in bribery when doing business in the executive’s country. A sectoral ranking is also available which scores and ranks 19 sectors. The survey asked how often three different types of bribery were perceived to occur in each sector: firstly, bribery of low-ranking public officials; secondly, improper contributions to high-ranking politicians to achieve influence; and thirdly, bribery between private companies.
