Policy-makers generally rely on anecdotal evidence to assess the prevalence of corruption, but this information is often misleading and incomplete. Hence, assessing the extent, cost, dynamics and perceptions of corruption is a useful first step in any anticorruption strategy. It not only provides reformers with better information on how to craft an anticorruption campaign for a specific country context but learning about the detrimental costs of corruption also helps raise awareness and build support amongst the general public. Additionally, the process of survey development and evaluation can effectively build local ownership for reform and engage new actors for change.
