The Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI) 2004 was released on October 20 2004
The 2004 Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI) was released on 20 October, 2004. This index is compiled at the University of Passau on behalf of Transparency International. An extensive coverage on the methodology and the data can be retrieved at the web site of the Internet Center for Corruption Research.

In 2003 Bulgaria was ranked on 55th place out of a total of 133 countries included in the research. The country received an index of 3.9 on a 10 point scale. The index relates to perceptions of the degree of corruption as seen by business people and risk analysts, and ranges between 10 (highly clean) to 0 (highly corrupt).

In 2004 Bulgaria was ranked on 54th place out of a total of 146 countries included in the survey and received an index of 4.1 on the 10 point scale. This year's CPI draws on 18 surveys collected between 2002 and 2004, conducted by 12 independent institutions. The authors of the 2004 report explicitly mentioned Bulgaria as one of the countries that "showed major improvements since the first publication of the CPI".

The release was accompanied by an on-line video conference, highlighting some detailed background information on the CPI, quantitative estimates of the damage due to corruption and the prospects for effectively fighting corruption.
