Abstract [Abstrakt]:
The article deals with corruption and its possible impact on the economic performance of sub-national units. This topic has been missing regional dimension until now. In spite of the fact that many exact procedures which try to quantify the corruption rate in a country already exist, they all focus without exception on corruption rate at the level of countries. The newly proposed Regional index of corruption for quantification regional corruption rate will be introduced. It will be possible to mutually compare the individual regions from final values, to specify more or less affected regions, eventually to quantify deviations of individual regions from surface rate of corruption by using mathematical and statistic methods. Using the calculations of the corruption rate there was analyzed the possible impact of corruption on economic performance of NUTS II regions of the Czech Republic.
