Anti-Corruption Datasets (1)
Corruption Perceptions Index 2010 The Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI) measures the perceived level of public-sector corruption in 180 countries and territories around the world. The CPI is a "survey of surveys", based on 13 different expert and business surveys.

These results indicate a serious corruption problem. The complete ranking and analysis of the findings can be found at: http://transparency.org/policy_research/surveys_indices/cpi/2010/results Please use the link below to download the dataset.
