Factors Driving Bribe Payments: Survey Evidence from Croatia
This research draws on a unique, large dataset of individuals in Croatia regarding their corruption experiences to analyze determinants of bribe payments. Taking account of economic, personal, social and geographic factors, results show that while greater competition for favors makes bribe offers more likely, females are less likely to offer bribes. A larger government size seems more focused on strengthening checks and balances rather than lengthening red tape. Robustness checks generally support these results. Copyright Springer-Verlag 2012
