The eighth edition of the World Bank’s Worldwide Governance Indicators (WGI) 1996-2008 reveals that many countries have made progress in areas of governance and anti-corruption over the past decade. However, it also shows that many countries around the world failed to make such improvements.

The indicators cover 212 countries and territories, drawing together hundreds of variables from 35 different data sources to capture the views of tens of thousands of survey respondents worldwide, as well as thousands of experts in the private, NGO, and public sectors.

Overall, Spain performed below the OECD average in governance terms, although it does appear above other European countries such as Italy, Greece and Cyprus.
