Top 10 Corrupt Countries World 2017

Here is the list of Top 10 corrupt countries world 2017 by perception and corruption index. Corruption of any country is calculated on the basis of its Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI).  Transparency International (TI) has published the Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI) since 1996, annually ranking countries "by their perceived levels of corruption, as determined by expert assessments and opinion surveys." The CPI generally defines corruption as "the misuse of public power for private benefit".
The CPI currently ranks 176 countries "on a scale from 100 (very clean) to 0 (highly corrupt)". Corruption in a country means "the misuse of public power for private benefit". North Korea is considered to be most corrupt country where as New zealand is considered to be the cleanest country.

Top 10, 20, 40, 50 and 100 Most Corrupt Countries List in the World

Transparency International commissioned University of Passau's Johann Graf Lambsdorff to produce the CPI.
The 2012 CPI takes into account 13 different surveys and assessments from 12 different institutions. The 13 surveys/assessments are either business people opinion surveys or performance assessments from a group of analysts. Early CPIs used public opinion surveys.The institutions are:

the African Development Bank, the Bertelsmann Foundation, the Economist Intelligence Unit, Freedom House, Global Insight, International Institute for Management Development, Political and Economic Risk Consultacy, The PRS Group, Inc., the World Economic Forum, the World Bank, the World Justice Project.

Countries needs to be evaluated by at least three sources to appear in the CPI.  The CPI measures perception of corruption due to the difficulty of measuring absolute levels of corruption. In This 100 is the best score and 0 is the worst score for corruption. Following is the list of most Corrupt countries in the world with most corrupt named first.
