Abstract


This study aims to analyze the effect of economic strength, government debt, level of democracy, public trust in government, and level of happiness on corruption perception. Data consisting of 113 countries are used to determine the causal relationship between variables that have been collected. Robust Regression statistical test with Method of Moment (MM) estimation is used to analyze the relationship between variables. The test results show that economic strength, level of democracy, public trust, and level of happiness have a significant positive effect on corruption perception, while government debt has no significant effect on corruption perception. It can be concluded that the higher the economic strength, the level of democracy, the public trust, and the level of happiness, the higher the corruption perception in the country. High corruption perception indicates the cleanliness of the country from corruption.
