Corruption in Slovakia 2003 - 2022
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 Slovakia: Parliamentary republic). Similarly, higher corruption occurs predominantly in low-income countries. In Slovakia, per capita income is 20,640 USD annually, which puts it in the middle of the global comparison. The above-average cost of living also indicates a comparatively prosperous country.
