The 2000 Corruption Perceptions Index

Notes

2000 CPI Score - relates to perceptions of the degree of corruption as seen by business people, risk analysts and the general public and ranges between 10 (highly clean) and 0 (highly corrupt).

Surveys Used - refers to the number of surveys that assessed a country's performance. 16 surveys were used and at least 3 surveys were required for a country to be included in the CPI.

Standard Deviation indicates differences in the values of the sources: the greater the standard deviation, the greater the differences of perceptions of a country among the sources.

High-Low Range provides the largest and smallest values of the sources. And, because of statistical factors it is possible, as seen in the three cases in the CPI, that the highest value exceeds 10.0 in this column.
