''Individual attitudes toward anti-corruption policies in Sub-Saharan Africa: Microeconometric evidence ''
( 2009, Vol. 29 No.3 )
This study examines African populations` attitudes toward anti-corruption policies. Previous studies only look at individuals` experiences or attitudes with respect to corruption itself or its prevalence. Relying on micro data from six Sub-Saharan African countries and using ordered probit models, we show that social factors (education, employment, living conditions, etc.) significantly affect the citizens` attitudes toward anti-corruption strategies. We also highlight the importance of political characteristics such as access to information (press, media, radio); trust in the court of appeal; participations in demonstrations.
Keywords: Corruption, Social factors, Political factors, Sub-Saharan Africa
