Explanatory notes

A more detailed description of the CPI 2002 methodology is available at http://www.transparency.org/cpi/index.html#cpi or at www.gwdg.de/~uwvw/2002.html

A CPI 2002 Score
relates to perceptions of the degree of corruption as seen by business people, academics and risk analysts, and ranges between 10 (highly clean) and 0 (highly corrupt).

A Surveys Used
refers to the number of surveys that assessed a country's performance. A total of 15 surveys were used from nine independent institutions, and at least three surveys were required fo r a country to be included in the CPI.

Standard Deviation
indicates differences in the values of the sources: the greater the standard deviation, the greater the differences of perceptions of a country among the sources.

High-Low Range
provides the highest and lowest values of the different sources.
