In El Salvador, 34% consider it necessary to pay bribes to speed up procedures. The poll also reveals that only 52% of Salvadorans believe in democracy over other forms of government.

On Twitter, El Salvador President Nayib Bukele tweeted “Are we the least corrupt country in Latin America?”.

The survey was conducted by telephone to 1,200 people in each country between September and October 2022 and has a margin of error of 2.8 and a confidence level of 95%.
