3/12/2013: Corruption Perceptions Index 2013: Ireland

Transparency International has published its annual Corruption Perceptions Index 2013.

Ireland rank in the global corruption table moved from 25th in 2012 to 21st in 2013. An improvement. However, historically, this year's ranking represents the third poorest ranking in any year since 1998.

Two charts to illustrate:

In Western Europe, Ireland scores respectable 12th, and we score 6th in the euro area. Only nine states of the euro area score in top 30 countries in 2013, eleven in top 40 and fifteen in top 50.
