Abstract

MOYAL, Pablo; PAGANO, Juan Pablo; ROSSI, Máximo  and  ROSSI, Tatiana. DE LA PERCEPCIÓN DE LA CORRUPCIÓN A LA COIMA: UN PUENTE INVISIBLE. Cuad. Econ. [online]. 2008, vol.27, n.49, pp.207-224. ISSN 0121-4772.

This paper analyzes the perception Uruguayans have of the level of corruption in their country using the Citizens´ Survey. We understand for corruption the illegal profit of public officials from their position in public office. In Uruguay the citizenship perceives that the level of corruption among public officials is high. The greater the belief that corruption is extensive, the greater is the willingness of the citizens surveyed to consider it necessary to give a bribe to solve a problem with officials. The personal experience of a citizen with regard to acts of corruption is the factor that most affects in a significant and important way the perception of the levels of corruption in the society.

Keywords : perception; corruption; bribe.
