Each country scorecard consists of 50 indicator questions.

54 countries

The MPT research covered a diverse array of countries
across the world.

There are 3
types of indicators:
de jure, de facto
and open text.

Each country scorecard assesses the regulation and enforcement of political finance.

Integrity Indicators

Each integrity indicator is composed of three components:

  • A quantitative score, selected in accordance with strict scoring conditions that ensure the cross-country comparability of the information presented
  • An explanatory comment
  • A list of sources that provides the evidence upon which the score and comment are based

Research Methodology

The research on the MPT Integrity Indicators was conducted between July and December 2014. The period of study for the research took place between January 2013 and July 2014, or where applicable, the most recent national level elections held within a country. Global Integrity worked closely with locally based experts and reviewers to gather the data, fact check the scores, comments, and sources, and compile each country scorecard.

Analyzing Results

The MPT dataset documents the diversity of political finance systems across the world. Indicator scores enable comparisons across countries, while comments and sources for each indicator provide a unique window into the realities of regulation and enforcement in each country covered.
