Paying bribes to get public services : a guide to global concepts and survey measures
This paper reviews concepts essential to understand the experience of mass bribery; compares alternative questions used by major multi-national surveys to measure that experience; and reports data from 248 surveys in 125 countries with 285,678 interviews. The major multi-national surveys included are the Global Corruption Barometer of Transparency International, the Life in Transition survey of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, the Eurobarometer, the Latin American Public Opinion Project and the Afrobarometer. The analysis shows the importance of controlling for contact with public services such as health, education, police and the courts, as well as about paying bribes. There are major differences within continents as well as across continents in the payment of bribes. Tables show how differences in the phrasing of questions used to measure key concepts affect answers given.
