Corruption in Sudan 2003 - 2021


The causes of corruption lie in part in political and cultural reasons. Ineffective law enforcement may further promote it. It is striking that it is regularly lower in democratically governed countries (form of government in Sudan: Presidential republic). Similarly, higher corruption occurs predominantly in low-income countries. In Sudan, per capita income is 670 USD annually, which is extremely low by global standards. The cost of living is well below the global average, indicating massive socioeconomic problems.

Note on the Corruption Perceptions Index

Money launderingThe data is determined annually by Transparency International. In 2021, the index was calculated for 179 countries from all continents. The original index shows the figures exactly the other way round and assigns higher values for lower corruption. So the official score for Sudan is 20 points in 2021, which would actually make it an anti-corruption index because as the score increases, corruption decreases. These numbers have been inverted here for better comprehensibility and easier visual acquisition of the graphs.
