Perceptions of corruption

Transparency International has done a global survey on perceptions of corruption. The results for NZ are here. The percentages thinking each type of institution are corrupt were (with result for Australia in brackets):

  1. Political Parties 46% (58%)
  2. 43% (58%)
  3. 36% (47%)
  4. Religions 35% (44%)
  5. Parliament 33% (36%)
  6. Public service 25% (35%)
  7. 24% (33%)
  8. Judiciary 20% (28%)
  9. 19% (23%)
  10. Health services 17% (20%)
  11. systems 16% (19%)
  12. 11% (25%)

A pity they can’t break the score for political parties down by party!

Australians perceive corruption more often in every category. Interesting that the features so highly.
