Abstract

This paper analyzes the perception that the Uruguayans have of the level of corruption in the country. We understand for corruption the illegal profit of the public officials from their position in the public office. In Uruguay the citizenship perceives that the level of the public officials' corruption is high. The more intense is the belief that the corruption is extended, there is a higher disposition of the citizens interviewed to consider that it is necessary to give a bribe to solve a problem with the officials. The citizen's personal experience with regard to corrupt acts is the fact that affects in a significant and important way the perception of the levels of corruption in the society.
