Transparency International publishes a myriad of reports related to governmental corruption and operations. The Global Corruption Barometer report for 2007 was released in December 2007 and it contains a wealth of important, albeit troubling, findings. The Barometer surveyed almost 64,000 respondents in 60 countries, and in doing so, created a profile of where citizens see the greatest degree of corruption and how they see the future development of corruption in their respective countries. Not surprisingly, their research found that it is the poor who are most often confronted with requests for bribes and that this functions as a regressive tax. Huguette Labelle, the chair of Transparency International noted, " Governments are not alone in their responsibility. We need to see concerted action from civil society and the private sector too."
