Global Terrorism Index 2018
(Institute for Economics and Peace)
Deaths from terrorism fell for the third consecutive year, after peaking in 2014.
The Global Terrorism Index 2018 shows the total number of deaths decreased by 27 per cent in 2017, with the largest falls occurring in Iraq and Syria.
A drop in fatalities was also reflected in country scores with 94 countries improving, compared to 46 that deteriorated. This is the highest number of countries to record a year-on-year improvement since 2004. The two countries with the most significant falls in terrorism are Iraq and Syria with deaths falling by 5,000 and 1,000 respectively. The large falls in the number of deaths in Iraq and Syria is mainly the result of ISIL’s continuing decline.

Corruption Perceptions Index 2016
No country gets close to a perfect score in the Corruption Perceptions Index 2016.
Over two-thirds of the 176 countries and territories in this year’s index fall below the midpoint of our scale of 0 (highly corrupt) to 100 (very clean). The global average score is a paltry 43, indicating endemic corruption in a country’s public sector. Top-scoring countries (yellow in the map below) are far outnumbered by orange and red countries where citizens face the tangible impact of corruption on a daily basis.
