ABSTRACT
The article covers several surveys and research reports on the motivation and predictors of cheating. Details are provided on a 2009 survey from the Josephson Institute of Ethics which found 51 percent of teenagers under the age of 17 thought cheating was necessary for success while a 2012 study in the journal "Economics Letters" found that women are just as likely to lie for financial benefits. Information is also included on the psychological effects and the relationship between cheating and physical appearance.
