A comprehensive nationwide investigation aims to shine a light on the risk of corruption that occurs in each state.
State Integrity, the group behind the survey, unveiled its findings on Monday, by ranking every state on its risk of corruption.
The group says it gathered data on a checklist of more than 300 risk indicators across 14 categories of state government as they apply in each state.
State Integrity says these report cards are meant to “guide reporters, citizens and eventually state officials to inspire reform where reform is needed, and celebrate states where policies and practices are working for people.”
