“People around the world regard corruption as a serious, and in many cases, very serious problem for their societies. On a scale of one to five, where one means ‘corruption is not a problem at all’ and five means ‘corruption is a very serious problem’, the average score across the countries surveyed was 4.1. The majority of people around the world believe that their government is ineffective at fighting corruption and corruption in their country is getting worse.” – Global Barometer 2013
