Transparency International's Global Corruption Barometer


Transparency International’s Global Corruption Barometer (GCB) draws on a survey of 100,000+ respondents in 100+ countries. It addresses people’s direct experiences with bribery and details their views on corruption in the main institutions in their countries. The information below was compiled from responses to AidData’s 2016 GDA Snap Poll, which asked public, private and civil society leaders to answer 11 questions about whether, when, and why they use governance data in their work. A total of 226 participants to the snap poll indicated familiarity with the GCB.
