In my preliminary research I have gathered data on corruption participation and behavior from such cross-national surveys as:
- International Social Survey Program,
- Life in Transition Survey,
- World Values Survey,
- European Values Study,
- Consolidation of Democracy in CEE,
- Values and Political Change in Post-Communist Europe,
- Asia Europe Survey,
- New Baltic Barometer,
- Political Participation and Equality in Seven Nations,
- Comparative National Elections Project, and
- Latinobarometro (Spain) (total of 32 data files by waves).
The following surveys were chosen because they are a) academic b) cross-national (have minimum three countries) c) accessible and sufficiently documented (having documentation available in English) d) available in the public domain e) cover adult population in European countries f) contain information on corruption, as well as trust in institutions, democratic values and basic socio-demographic characteristics. The choice of the surveys was based on the criteria created in Data Harmonization project.
