The sample includes 135 countries of the world, from all continents, with different degrees of economic development and politicaladministrative structures, for the period 1996-2008.

This connection has different intensity, as the state is developed, developing or in transition. Moreover, there is a number of unobserved factors, which emphasizes or temperate in temporal approach the relationship between corruption - political, administrative and economic determinants factors.
