The State Integrity Investigation is a research project that compiles and assesses qualitative data on the state of transparency, accountability and anti-corruption mechanisms in all 50 US states. For the second round (2015) we worked with 50 state-based reporters and 50 reviewers to rigorously research, source, and answer the integrity questions that matter.
This is not meant to point the finger at individuals, rather, we assessed the institutional landscape meant to prevent corrupt behaviors. The result is a comprehensive set of explanations, providing insights into 13 areas of state governance.
