Which country is most corrupt? Why has the US score gone down? See how the annual corruption index has changed. The following is Transparency International’s 2010 Corruption Perceptions Index.

The Corruption Index is always controversial. But this is a guide to countries you may want to do business with and ones you may want to be go into with caution.

Transparency International’s 2009 Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI) is the world’s most credible measure of of domestic, public sector corruption.

The CPI scores countries on a scale of zero to 10, with zero indicating high levels of corruption and 10, low levels. And the most corrupt places in the world are not the most surprising. Unstable governments, often with a legacy of conflict, continue to dominate the bottom rungs of the CPI. Afghanistan and Myanmar share second to last place with a score of 1.4, with Somalia coming in last with a score of 1.1.

The world’s most peaceful countries score the best. In the 2010 CPI, Denmark, New Zealand and Singapore tie for first place with scores of 9.3.

The ranking is based on data from country experts and business leaders at 10 independent institutions, including the World Bank, Economist Intelligence Unit and World Economic Forum.

Transparency International says that it has seen improvements in scores
from 2009 to 2010 for Bhutan, Chile, Ecuador, FYR Macedonia, Gambia, Haiti, Jamaica, Kuwait, and Qatar.

The scores of the Czech Republic, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Madagascar, Niger and the United States have all gone down.
