 Caribbean Journal"Barbados has the lowest perceived level of corruption in the Caribbean, while Haiti has the region’s highest, according to a report released Wednesday by Transparency International.

The report, which gives countries higher scores for lower levels of perceived public sector corruption, ranked Barbados at 15th in the world. It improved from 16th in last year’s list.

The index goes from 0, meaning a country is perceived as highly corrupt, to 100, meaning it is perceived as very clean."
