The Corruption in the Caribbean report represents the voices of people throughout the Caribbean and their experiences with corruption in their countries.
The Corruption in the Caribbean report presents question-level data drawn from the General Population Poll (GPP), an original data source designed and collected by the World Justice Project. The questions in this report were designed specifically to measure perceptions of and experiences with corruption in the Caribbean.
The GPP was conducted in 14 Caribbean countries between June and August 2022. Interviews were conducted face-to-face to nationally representative samples of 500 to 1,000 households. This poll was designed to capture data on the experiences and perceptions of ordinary people regarding a variety of themes related to corruption. More information on the methodology of the study can be found at the end of the report.
The data derived from the General Population Poll is presented in a series of tables, each one highlighting a different dimension of corruption from the perspective of people living in the Caribbean region. In addition to regional averages, the tables feature data from the following countries: Antigua and Barbuda, The Bahamas, Barbados, Dominica, the Dominican Republic, Grenada, Guyana, Haiti, Jamaica, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Lucia, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Suriname, and Trinidad and Tobago. The report presents data on themes such as: social norms toward corruption, perceptions of corruption in the public and private sectors, experiences with bribe solicitation by public and private actors, and instances of election manipulation. In addition to thematic tables, the data is organized into country profiles to facilitate country-specific analysis.
