UNODC: Manual on Corruption Surveys

SDG 16 Hub • 22 July 2020
Methodological guidelines on the measurement of bribery and other forms of corruption through sample surveys

 

"Corruption represents a severe impediment to sustainable development. The cost of corruption is greater than merely the diversion of resources from their rightful purpose – corruption corrodes the social fabric of society, weakens the rule of law, undermines trust in the government, erodes people’s quality of life and creates a conducive environment for organized crime, terrorism and violent extremism to flourish.

(...)

Given the lack of internationally-established methodologies or standards in measuring Sustainable Development Goal indicators 16.5.1 and 16.5.2, few Member States have collected data on corruption indicators in the 2030 Agenda. Many have sought guidance and standard methodologies to support their efforts. The Manual on Corruption Surveys: Methodological guidelines on the measurement of bribery and other forms of corruption through sample surveys seeks to address this gap."
