CORRUPTION PERCEPTION INDEX 2011

Posted by: | Posted on: Апрель 23, 2013

1The Transparency International national chapter in Azerbaijan presents the TI Corruption Perception Index 2011. This year Azerbaijan obtained a score of  2.4 which is the same as the last year (on a scale from 10 -very clean to 0 -very corrupt) and was ranked 143-d among 183 countries surveyed in 2011 (in 2010 the country was ranked 134-th out of 178). Transparency International emphasises that while the score reflects developments within a given country, the ranking establishes a connection between these trends and trends in the international context. In this perspective, the change of Azerbaijan’s position should be interpreted as a result of the increase of the number of countries  in the Index and better achievements by other countries. Finally, since data for 2011 CPI were mostly gathered in 2009 and 2010 – the Index does not fully reflect progress realized in the course of the current year.Ranking enables TI to build an index, but a country’s rank can change simply because new countries enter the index or others drop out, while a country’s score is a much more important indication of the perceived level of corruption in a country and allows to compare developments in a country over time.   2011 data for Azerbaijan was drawn from 7 different sources by  6  institutions. There was a change of sources from  2010. The gap between Armenia and Azerbaijan is not “big”. Armenia’s 2010 and  2011 score – 2.6 (dropped from 3.0 in 2007;  2.9 in 2008 and 2.7 in 2009) – is not terribly good either and is on a declining trend. Since Azerbaijan’s economic potential is immense, it invites more international scrutiny. That can be another reason why the international business community is apparently somewhat more critical about the situation in Azerbaijan than in other comparable countries. Russia showed considerable increase from 2.1 in 2010 to 2.4 in 2011. Other  countries of interest to us are: as compared to 2010 in 2011  Turkey and Kazakhstan  declined (from 4.4. to  4.2 and from 2.9 to 2.7); while Georgia increased from 3.8. to 4.1. and Iran from 2.2. to 2.7.
