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.

DataSet Where the Bribes Are Paid - Interactive Database
This interactive database compiles decades of data on violations and penalties under the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, the U.S. flagship legislation that makes bribery of foreign officials a crime. Since its inception, prosecutors have penalized over 200 companies under the FCPA in about 80 countries, amassing about $4 billion in penalties. The database, called Where the Bribes are Paid , allows users to see how the total penalties amassed in each country break down by sector.

DataSet Defence Companies Anti-Corruption Index
The purpose of this study is to provide solid data through which all defence companies can embed zero tolerance of corruption. Transparency International UK (TI-UK) used readily available public information to assess companies against the 34 questions. The draft analysis was then sent to the company for comment: this was the company’s opportunity to guide TI-UK towards other publicly available information that may have been missed, and/or to provide additional internal information. The results of the assessments for companies based on public information are presented in our index. Where companies provided internal information, TI-UK reviewed and discussed the documents with the company. The results of this exercise, showing the impact of this information, are presented separately.

DataSet Government Defence Anti-Corruption Index (GI)
This Index is the first global analysis of corruption risk in defence establishments worldwide. We aim to give governments, armed forces, civil society and citizens the tools to avoid the dangers and inefficiencies that corruption in defence brings. Each of the 82 countries was assessed by an independent researcher, using a questionnaire of 77 questions. The assessor scored each question from 0-4, and provided a narrative response to explain that score. These assessments were peer reviewed. We also invited the government to review their assessments and provide further information. Based on these assessments, each country was placed in a band, from A to F, and given scores in five risk areas: political, financial, personnel, operations, and procurement risk.
