For some years now, Spanish media have highlighted the numerous corruption scandals investigated by the judiciary. All this information could have led to a more widespread perception of corruption, as shown by different surveys and indexes. The main object of this article is to analyze the quantitative and qualitative features of corruption in Spain and to determine whether there is a correlation between hard data on corruption and perception of the problem. In this text we have tested three hypotheses by examining judicial statistics, the contents of judicial inquiries and data from different surveys and media. This article contributes to a better understanding of the main features of the problem and opens the way to more detailed research on its causes and consequences.
