Note #1:  The Corruption Perception Index has the inexactitude of opinion polls. It's a rough measurement of the existence of bribery to see doctors, to have access to water or other resources and access to education or to the justice system and other government services, including allowing businesses to function. The index is created by Transparency International, which draws from a variety of institutional assessments. High scores correspond well with affluent societiesthat have well developed institutions, an honest electoral and democratic tradition, including a well developed and available media and adequate revenue for sufficient pay to public servants.
