Transparency International presents its Corruption Index every year, ranking countries from most to the least corrupt one. The lowest numbers show the highest level of corruption in the public sector, and countries with the highest scores are the least corrupt ones, on a 0-100 scale.
The results are devastating, as 114 countries (of the 196 countries of the world) score below 50, but Denmark has been the World’s least corrupt country for the last 4 years in a row, reaching 91 points in 2015. This result might be in connection with other factors, such as the general life satisfaction of the Danes, the best prospects for women (as discussed in our previous posts), or Danish people’s general trust in their government and parliament.
