Democracy that Delivers #257: Everything You Didn’t Know about TI’s Corruption Perceptions Index with Jon Vrushi

04.08.2021 | Frank Brown, Ken Jaques |

Jon Vrushi, Transparency International’s Research Coordinator, joins ACGC’s podcast to discuss the statistical basis and methodology behind the world’s most popular corruption measure: The Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI). Vrushi explains the 13 data sources behind the index and explains why expert opinions and evaluations of public sector corruption – including some based on quantitative evidence – are used instead of public perception surveys. Listen to Vrushi discuss how the CPI is “used and abused,” the impact it has (or doesn’t have) on anti-corruption programming, and how tracking the world’s corruption is influencing Transparency International’s global strategy. He is joined by Anti-Corruption & Governance Center Director Frank Brown and CIPE Communications Director Ken Jaques.
