Special Reports

Revealed: The most (and least) corrupt countries in the world, 2024

People

The CEOWORLD magazine’s Corruption Perception Rankings for 2024 show that Finland is the least corrupt country in the world, followed by New Zealand and Denmark. Points such as bribery of public officials, kickbacks in public procurement, embezzlement of state funds, and the effectiveness of public sector anti-corruption efforts are considered to calculate the level of corruption perceived in a country. A score of 0 indicates high levels of corruption perception, while a 100 indicates no corruption is perceived in the respective country.

Singapore ranked the 4th least corrupt country globally, followed by Norway, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Sweden, Germany, and Ireland. The United Kingdom came 21st and the United States 23rd. At the other end, Somalia (again) finished at the bottom of the pile, with just 45.14 points. Venezuela, Syria, and South Sudan did a little better.

China has been ranked 76th with a score of 76.8, behind India, the world’s most populous country, ranked 66th at 80.67. Some other notable countries that were ranked include Japan (12th), Australia (18th), France (19th), Taiwan (26th), Israel (30th), Canada (39th), and Italy (41st).

Despina Wilson
I am a senior editor and data journalist at CEOWORLD magazine. My job involves using infographics to report on news topics related to business and policy, with a global perspective. I hold a master's degree in journalism and have worked for newspapers and reporting projects in both the US and the UK, giving me a unique transatlantic perspective. I believe that data can enhance coverage of all news topics. As a contributor, I plan cover a wide range of issues, such as gender equality, climate change, labor, and immigration, using relevant statistics and insightful visualizations.
