Evidence-based problem analysis and use of diagnostic tools

Review of the evidence and data sources used for strategy development, either referenced in the strategies themselves or background materials provided by the national authorities, for the public integrity strategies identified in sub-indicator 1.

Subindicators fulfilled per country

Within the last five years, an inter-institutional body has prepared and published an analytical report on public integrity risks that formulates recommendations and sets priorities for the whole public integrity system.

Each existing strategy is based on an assessment of public integrity risks, identifying as a minimum specific types of relevant integrity breaches, the actors likely to be involved, as well as the expected likelihood and impact if the risk materialises.

Each existing strategy refers to at least 4 out of the following 8 sources of information related to public integrity: (a) indicators from international organisations or research institutions, (b) employee surveys, (c) household surveys, (d) business surveys, (e) other survey data, such as user surveys, or polls from local research institutions, (f) data from public registries (e.g. law enforcement, audit institutions, national statistics office), (g) published research documents from national or international organisations or academia (e.g. articles, reports, working papers, political economy analysis) and (h) commissioned research.
