Index of Public Integrity, ERCAS and Hertie School of Governance

The Index of Public Integrity (IPI) is a composite index that uses indirect objective measures (proxies) in a conscious attempt to present an actionable corruption measurement methodology.  The IPI provides a measure of a country’s capacity to control corruption and enforce integrity, broadly understood as a balance between constraints (legal + normative) vs resources (power discretion + material resources). The single composite indicator is based on an assessment of six components:  budget transparency, administrative transparency, online services, judicial independence, ecitizenship and freedom of the press.  Each final component score is normalised to a range between 1 and 10. The most recent edition from 2021 covered 114 countries in total.
