Abstract

Although the issue of corruption has been current for some time, this topic is very much neglected at the regional level for a variety of reasons including data limitation. This paper aims to fill this gap by providing a composite indicator: the Italian Public Sector Corruption Index (IP- SCI). The IPSCI will be used as a new measure of corruption over the 2001-2014 period. Apart from intrinsic interest, this study, distinguishing corruption at a regional level, and it allows to understand the intensity of the phenomenon. The case of Italy is particularly suitable for a within- country investigation as one of the striking characteristics of Italy is the significant disparities through time and across regions.
