Abstract: Corruption is a phenomenon with dramatic consequences for modern societies and affects, to a greater or lesser extent, every single country in the world. For this reason, this article uses a database of 170 countries with the objective of verifying the possible economic and institutional causes that favour the emergence of this phenomenon. Through the literature review, it has been possible to identify several explanatory variables of corruption, such as GDP per capita, level of shadow economy in relation to GDP, educational level, level of democracy and level of press freedom, as well as the country's electoral system and the type of political regime. A linear regression by OLS shows how the GDP per capita, the level of the shadow economy, the level of democracy and the level of education are the key variables when explaining the pre-eminence of corruption.
