Majority Of Icelanders Think Corruption Is Widespread

Published October 24, 2013

Two thirds of Icelanders think corruption is a widespread problem within the government, according to a recent survey conducted by Gallup.
This puts Iceland’s responses on par with those from Austria, Bangladesh, Iraq, Haiti and Macedonia.
For comparison, only 30% of Finns believe their government is corrupt, 25% of Norwegians, 15% of Danes and 14% of Swedes think corruption is a widespread problem within their government.
The 2012 survey asked 1,000 adults from 129 nations whether they believe corruption is widespread throughout their governments.
Of those, 108 believed so.
