2009 Experiences of Corruption

From a late 2009 survey, the percentage of people who reported paying a bribe


This map visualizes the percent of people that reported paying a bribe in 2009, according to Integrity Watch Afghanistan's (an anti-corruption watchdog) in their recent survey of 6.500 people, conducted in late 2009 and covering 32 provinces. The findings from the survey show that bribery has doubled since 2007, and "50% of survey respondents consider that corruption fosters the expansion of the Taliban and one third reported it to cause conflict at local level, mainly related to land issues." IAW's full report was published in early July 2010 and is available for download in both English, Dari, and Pashto.
