Global Corruption Barometer 2006

Millions of people around the world come face-to-face with corruption in their daily lives, and urgently want their government to take action to stop it. This is the conclusion of Transparency International’s Global Corruption Barometer 2006, launched on December 7. The 2006 Barometer, a public opinion survey conducted for TI by Gallup International, looks at the extent of corruption through the eyes of ordinary citizens around the world. It explores the issue of petty bribery in greater depth than ever before, highlighting people’s personal experience of bribery, and identifying the sectors most affected by corruption, its frequency, and how much people must pay.
