Denmark Comes Out on Top in TI’s Anti-Corruption Rankings

Roberta Holland | December 3, 2014

Denmark again took the top spot in an anti-corruption watchdog’s annual ranking of the cleanest to the most corrupt economies around the globe.

Transparency International’s Corruption Perceptions Index 2014 gave Denmark a score of 92 on its scale of 0 (highly corrupt) to 100 (very clean). The rankings are based on expert opinions of public sector corruption. TI says a poor score is an indicator of “prevalent bribery, lack of punishment for corruption, and public institutions that don’t respond to citizens’ needs.” Denmark’s score improved one point over the 2013 results, when Denmark tied with New Zealand for the top score. North Korea and Somalia tied for last place this year, earning just 8 points each.
