The survey was undertaken as an answer to Transparency International’s annual surveys on how the public in various countries perceives the corruption level in their respective countries; they have often concluded that Iceland is among the least corrupt countries in the world, reports.

Bifröst University came to a completely different conclusion in their survey. The sample was 1,350 people from all around the country. Those contacted were asked to rate the corruption level in the Icelandic administration and 63.6 percent participated in the survey.
