The Global Corruption Index measures the state of- corruption and white-collar crimes in 196 countries and territories. They are ranked from very low risk (0) to very high risk (100). According to the website, the index can be used to conduct initial risk mappings as part of a company’s compliance. The index uses four indicators to measure corruption: the ratification of key conventions, level of perceived corruption, reported experience of public and private corruption by citizens and the private sector, and a selection of country characteristics closely linked to corruption. It also measures four indicators under prevention mechanisms: citizens voice and transparency, government functioning and effectiveness, legal context, and political context.
