Tools Used for Making the Dashboard

  • Tableau – to make general graphs
  • Photoshop – to make it more attractive (as some of the data was mocked)


The above Dashboard was made keeping in mind the User. As this Dashboard was for the Prime Minister of Singapore. We had to give him the detailed status report of the corruption in the country. Lets discuss it graph by graph,

The First Graph displays the Corruption Perception Index vs Number of Corruption Cases in Past 7 Years. The Corruption Perceptions Index ranks countries/territories based on how corrupt a country’s public sector is perceived to be. It is a composite index, drawing on corruption-related data from expert and business surveys carried out by a variety of independent and reputable institutions. Scores range from 0 (highly corrupt) to 100 (very clean). From the graph we can see that even though the number of cases are reducing each year, the CPI score is not improving which means that other nations are doing better than Singapore.

Corruption Rank table ranks each country on the basis of the corruption rank in year 2015 and also tells us if the rank has improved or degraded from last year. Prime Minister needs to know which countries are doing better than them and can ask for new measures other countries are taking to fight corruption. We can see that Singapore’s rank has degraded by 1 from last year.

Next graph shows the Change in Corruption by each department which are lead by the miniters from PMO’s Cabinet. From here they can see the most and the least corrupt departments and ask the respective lead/minister for the reasons.

Last two graphs shows the People’s view about the governments efforts to fight corruption. As a prime minister is a lead of its Political Party also, he needs to make sure that irrespective of his governments efforts, if general people are feeling the change in the corruption in the country. Because, without people’s support, he will not be able to be successfull in the next elections.

Prediction of the Next years Rank of Singapore with respect to corruption is taken from the which helps the prime minister to know which way the CPIB is heading too.
