The survey findings clearly identify educational attainment as a key factor in both the exposure to and refusal of bribery. This is because, as income and expenditure tend to rise with education, the better educated are more likely to be involved in the payment of a bribe than those with little or no formal education, whereas the readiness to refuse bribery requests is also greater among those with a higher level of educational attainment. This suggests that education is a key factor in addressing bribery.
