Iran's Corruption Perceptions Index Improves, Rank Drops

Iran's score based on the Corruption Perceptions Index improved by two notches in 2016 with 29 out of 100, according to a report by global graft monitor Transparency International.
Meanwhile the country’s ranking dropped by one place as it is now ranked 131 out of 176 countries. The CPI scale indicates that zero is perceived to be highly corrupt while 100 is perceived to be very clean. 
Denmark and New Zealand jointly came in first as the cleanest countries, while Somalia with a score of 10 came last, preceded by South Sudan which scored 11. According to the report, 69% of the 176 countries scored below 50 on CPI in 2016. The report also shows more countries declined in the index in 2016 compared to 2015.
