Abstract


Contemporary societies in transition face numerous traumas in their social development. One of them is corruption. It can be stated that corruption is a current problem of the world. The question is how widespread is it and what is the social, and above all organized action to such a condition. Development of society and economy, institutional and political system or the dominant social and cultural norms represent elements that together can be grouped in various ways, but corruption remains a scourge from which any country, including Macedonia is not spared. Its citizens perceive it as a particular problem they face. This paper attempts to display the research model on corruption, by presenting the results about corruption of the public opinion polls
conducted in the country in 2013, 2014 and 2015 (the last research from 2015 is ongoing and is being implemented in the period from 08.01.2015 to 20.01.2015). Thus, the level of corruption (from minimum score 1 to maximum 10) according to assessed citizens is highest among customs and the customs officers and in 2013 it totaled 8.18, while in 2014 it was 7.96. Political leaders are assessed with an average score of 8.06 in 2013 and 7.93 in 2014, and following are the political parties with a score of 8.04 in 2013 and 8.09 in 2014. We can see a similar pattern for judges with 7.97 in 2013, i.e. 8.02 in 2014, and for holders of public (administrative) functions with 7.88 in 2013 and 7.73 in 2014.
