Abstracts
In an attempt to explore the linkages between corruption
surveys, underreporting corruption experiences and causes of
reluctance to report corruption, this paper provides insight into
solutions applied to mitigate the underreporting risks in
surveying corruption experiences in Croatia. Based on the
Survey on use of public services and public integrity in Croatia
2010, the issue of underreporting corruption is assessed with a
two-fold approach. The study first discusses the survey
methodology applied, where the main concerns were the
willingness of respondents to report corruption and their
perceptions regarding risk of personal data misuse. Potential
reluctance to admit involvement in corruption as a criminal act
might be driven by a fear of subsequent surveillance or
investigation. Further, we investigate the concerns expressed by
respondents regarding the misuse of data and about protecting
anonymity. Survey data were used to analyze citizens' attitudes
and reasons for (not) reporting crime to official institutions. The
analysis focuses on reporting corruption experiences, both
formally and informally. The findings show a very high level of
citizens' opportunism and lack of public trust in institutions that
might impede anti-corruption efforts in Croatia.
