Analysis of Corruptors Demography to Prevent Corruption (Study on Court Judgment at Bandung District)
Abstract. Corruption is a big problem for Indonesia. We can prevent corruption by
different ways, such as identifying the perpetrator of corruption, and also by making
demographic perpetrators of corruption. By recognizing the perpetrators of corruption,
prevention is expected to be more effective and efficient. Corruption in the Reformation era

regional based profile is needed, because the tendency of corruption in a region can be
different from other regions.
