On the Evolution of Corruption Patterns in the Post-Communist Countries

Andrzej Cieślik () and Lukasz Goczek ()

No 7/2015, Working Papers from Institute of Economic Research

Abstract: In this paper, we study the evolution of corruption patterns in 27 post-communist countries during the period 1996-2012 using the Control of Corruption Index and the corruption category Markov transition probability matrix. This method allows us to generate the long-run distribution of corruption among the post-communist countries. Our empirical findings suggest that corruption in the post-communist countries is a very persistent phenomenon that does not change much over time. Several theoretical explanations for such a result are provided.
