Furthermore, the study uses explanatory variables that have a bearing on growth; capital, population, trade openness, state consumption, education, political stability and initial GDP growth/capita. An regression analysis, model 1, that includes countries in Asia has been done, in order to get a holistic picture of the importance of corruption for growth.

These three analyzes focus on different levels of corruption in Asian countries and what effect these levels contribute to. The study finds that corruption has a significant negative effect on economic growth in Asia and that different levels of corruption generates different effects on growth.
