Perceived levels of public-sector corruption, 2011

New Zealanders’ political values emphasise honesty in government and a public service virtually free of corruption. Transparency International, a global civil-society organisation that describes itself as ‘the global coalition against corruption’, ranks countries and territories each year according to their perceived levels of public sector corruption. In 2011 New Zealand was ranked at the top of the list.
