Investigating the cultural patterns of corruption: A nonparametric analysi. MPRA Paper No. 32546, University Library of Munich, Germany.  In common with Tzeremes N (2011).

Based on Hofstede’s cultural dimensions and the corruption perception index, the results reveal that countries with higher levels of corruption tend to have higher power distance and collectivism values in their society.
