Thailand has slid to 88th place out of 176 in the 2012 Corruption Perceptions Index compiled by Berlin-based Transparency International. 

The global anti-corruption organisation has changed its methodology for ranking the 176 countries this year, from previously scoring them on a scale from 0 (highly corrupt) to 10 (highly clean) to 0 (highly corrupt) to 100 (highly clean).

Thailand scored 37 out of 100, sharing the same score and ranking with Malawi, Morocco, Suriname, Swaziland and Zambia.
