Abstract

This paper uses survey data on cross-national corruption to examine determinants of corruption. The key contribution is in examining differences in corruption across various government occupations: (i) (general) government officials; (ii) customs officers; and (iii) police officers. We find significant differences in corruption across these occupations and factors driving overall corrupt activity, including personal attributes of bribe givers, macroeconomic and institutional factors, and these factors do not necessarily exert similar influences across all government occupations. In particular, police corruption seems qualitatively different from corruption in other occupations.
