Background and Objective: Most of the victims of administrative corruption are the employees of medical sciences and there is no standard tool for measuring administrative corruption among them. Therefore, this research was conducted with the aim of constructing and validating the short form of administrative corruption questionnaire.
Method: The method of conducting this research is of qualitative and quantitative type. The statistical population included all the employees of medical sciences in Kerman. At first, a questionnaire was prepared by reviewing the sources of the initial questions. Then, 4,500 employees of medical sciences were selected among the Kerman government organizations as stratified; 100 people of the samples were selected for convergence validity and 350 people of the samples were selected for exploratory factor analysis. The tool used included the short form of administrative corruption questionnaire and the McCusker’s Violence Questionnaire (2006). To investigate the validity of the scale, content validity, convergence and factor analysis methods were used. The reliability of the scale was investigated by internal consistency methods and composite reliability.
Results: The results of exploratory factor analysis showed that the administrative corruption questionnaire consists of 30 five-factor and has proper validity and reliability. The second-order confirmatory factor analysis also confirmed the five-factor model.
Conclusion: The administrative corruption questionnaire can be used to evaluate administrative corruption among the employees of medical sciences.
