Israelis perceive their public sector as increasingly corrupt, according to a global index released Wednesday by the Peace Index. Israel ranked at number 39 in the world, continuing the country's slide, as Israeli confidence in the public sector fell to its lowest level in 16 years.

Transparency International’s 2012 Corruption Perceptions Index ranked 176 countries on perceptions of public sector corruption. Denmark, Finland and New Zealand tied for the top slot, with a score of 90 (out of 100.) At the bottom of the list ranked Afghanistan, North Korea and Somalia, all with a score of eight.
