After implementing a two-stage probit estimation procedure, our evidence indicates that transparency is inversely related to the likelihood of local political corruption. This result supports the hypothesis that a lack of transparency conceals corrupt activities and that an unwillingness to provide information is a good proxy of the likelihood of corruption.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10553/55400||ISSN:||2254-7088||DOI:||10.17979/ejge.2018.7.2.4509||Source:||European Journal of Government and Economics [ISSN 2254-7088], v. 7 (2), p. 106-122|
