Top 10 Least Corrupt Countries World 2017 by Perception Corruption Index

Top 10 Least Corrupt Countries World 2017

Here is the list of Top 10 Least 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". New Zealand is considered to be Least  corrupt country where as North Korea is considered to be the Most Corrupt country.

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

Least Corrupt Countries are the ones which have most transparency in their governments and no government employee misuses his or her power for personal benefits.

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. Countries are  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 least  Corrupt countries in the world with Least corrupt named first.

Top 10 Least corrupt countries world 2017 Rank 3 – Finland

Corruption in Finland is structural, and the existence of a 'good old boys club' founded on mutual trust is a problem. Decision-making in state investments is also problematic. Public procurements are often decided by private companies that have no obligation to reveal details publicly.  According to 2016 results of Corruption Perception Index of Transparency International, Finland ranks as the 3rd least corrupted out of 176 countries.


Top 10 Least corrupt countries world 2017 Rank 4 – Sweden

Corruption in Sweden has been defined as "the abuse of power" by Swedish National Council for Crime Prevention. By receiving bribes, bribe takers abuse their position of power, which is consistent with how the National Anti-Corruption Unit of the Swedish Prosecution Authority specifies the term. Although bribes and improper rewards are central in the definition of corruption in Sweden, corruption in the sense of "abuse of power" can also manifest itself in other crimes such as misuse of office, embezzlement, fraud and breach of trust against a principal.
