Ethnic and religious diversity and corruption

Oguzhan Dincer

Economics Letters, 2008, vol. 99, issue 1, 98-102

Abstract: I analyze the effects of ethnic and religious diversity on corruption. Using data from US states, I find a positive and linear relationship between ethnic/religious polarization and corruption and an inverse-U-shaped relationship between ethnic/religious fractionalization and corruption.
