This Eurobarometer is designed to explore the level of corruption perceived and experienced by European citizens. It was first held in 2005 and was repeated in 2007, 2009, 2011, 2013, 2017, and 2019. This survey covers the following areas:
- General perceptions of corruption, including its acceptability, its extent, and perceived changes in incidence in recent years.
- Detailed attitudes toward corruption in public institutions and business, and the effectiveness of the government, the judiciary, and institutions in fighting corruption.
- Personal experience of bribery, and the incidence of corruption in contact with institutions.
- Bribery and corruption in the health sector.
- If corruption has been reported, awareness of where to report the corruption and the level of trust in various authorities to deal with it.
The results were analyzed at the EU level (including the 27 member states), by country, and by socio-demographic category. The questionnaire used in the current survey is based on the survey first implemented in the 2013 Special Eurobarometer survey. The current results were compared with those of 2019, and in some cases with previous surveys. In 2019, the UK was part of the EU and therefore the EU average included the UK at that time.
