Global corruption barometer 2020 /Citizen's view and experiences of corruption/
The Global Corruption Barometer (GCB) – Asia, published by Transparency International, presents the largest, most detailed set of public opinion data on citizens’ views on corruption and direct experiences of bribery in Asia. Based on fieldwork conducted between June and September 2020 in 15 countries, and between March and August 2019 in Sri Lanka and Vietnam, the GCB surveyed nearly 20,000 citizens.
The results show that nearly three out of four people think corruption is a big problem in their country. The GCB found that nearly one in five people who accessed public services, such as health care and education, paid a bribe in the preceding year.
This equates to approximately 836 million citizens in the 17 countries surveyed. Despite this, the GCB raises hope for positive change. More than three out of five people think that citizens can help stop corruption.
