Anatomy of Urban Corruption: A Review of Official Corruption Complaints from a Mexican City .

By Paul Lagunes, Baker Institute for Public Policy; Ana Grajales, Columbia University; and Tomas Nazal, Columbia University

The authors examine a unique and anonymized dataset of complaints about government corruption in an urban Mexico district. The trends they found are transferable to other urban districts across the country and Latin America, they write, and may help anticorruption agencies in Mexico and beyond direct their efforts. https://doi.org/10.25613/cqgc-xv79.
