This year, we cover 31 countries examining transparency of the public procurement process, media freedom, asset disclosure requirements, conflicts of interest regulations, and more.
Below you’ll find a breakdown of general results that we found interesting, but we invite you to dig into the complete country scorecard(s) and make your own findings. You can also use our widget to choose one indicator and see how all 31 countries fared on that question (go to the bottom of this page).
The indicators are organized by subject and further divided into categories and subcategories to allow for easier search and consultation. The majority of the countries have been assessed on more than one occasion, which creates the opportunity to identify gains and losses over time.
The countries covered in 2011 were: Algeria, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Burkina Faso, China, Colombia, Georgia, Germany, Ghana, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Jordan, Kosovo, Liberia, Macedonia, Malawi, Mexico, Mongolia, Nicaragua, Serbia, Sierra Leone, Tajikistan, Uganda, Ukraine, United Sates, Venezuela, Vietnam, and Zimbabwe.
