We use two data bases, one on Ethiopia and the other relating to Sudan, to analyse corruption. In the case of Sudan, the focus is on concerns with corruption as measured by whether the individual identifies this as the most important issue facing the country. In Ethiopia the focus is on the perceived corruption of state agents at the local level. Concern with, and perceptions of, corruption increased with education and as the individual aged. They were also influenced by local conditions, in the case of Sudan by the quality of local services, and in Ethiopia, by local drought conditions.
