The Ghana Police Service is the most corrupt institution in the country, a research conducted by Ghana Statistical Service (GSS) together with other stakeholders has stated.

In total, 24 institutions were sampled for the said survey. 

The research was christened; Corruption in Ghana, Peoples Experiences and View.

The two institutions garnered 37.4% and 33.6% respectively, while elected government representatives are at the bottom of the list at 2.9%.

The survey also started that people with the highest level of (tertiary) education were 1.6 times more likely to have paid a bribe than people with no formal education.

Again, 10 out of the 16 regions in the country recorded a prevalence of bribery higher than the national average.

There are, however, sizable variations across the 16 regions of the country.

The prevalence of bribery in the Bono East, Savannah and Volta regions, for example, is substantially lower than the national rate, at 11.8, 14.5 and 19.1 per cent, respectively.
