Tunisia’s Corruption Perception’s Index (CPI) score rose three points from last year, as the country continues to make efforts to increase transparency following the revolution.

Transparency International released its annual corruption report today, giving Tunisia the top spot among North African nations with a score of 41 out of 100.

The CPI scores and ranks are “based on how corrupt a country’s public sector is perceived to be,” and the data is compiled through a “combination of surveys and assessments of corruption.” New Zealand tops the list with a score of 95, while Afghanistan, North Korea, and Somalia bring up the rear with a score of 8.

Tunisia’s three-point increase follows last week’s announcement that Freedom House reclassified the country’s freedom ranking from “not free” in 2011 to a “partly free” status in 2012.

But the country’s improvements are overshadowed by its failure to top its pre-revolution 2010 score of 43, and much more remains to be done as Tunisia’s ranking in comparison to other countries and territories dropped from 73 to 75.

Tunisia shares the 75 spot with Bulgaria, Liberia, and Montenegro – one ranking behind Italy and two rankings ahead of China.
