On 31 July 2016, Egypt’s Prime Minister announced that his country had significantly improved its rank on Transparency International’s annual Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI) and misstated the actual rank. The correct ranking of Egypt in 2015 is 88 out of 176, an improvement over 2014 when it ranked 94 out of 175.

Having more or less countries on the index can significantly alter a country’s ranking. The number of countries is determined by the sources of information used in the index.
