In Mexico the problem of corruption not only affects the state, but also a significant number of institutions unrelated to it. In addition, there is also a need to strengthen the sense of citizen responsibility in order to deal with corrupt practices. This article aims to demonstrate statistically whether there are significant differences in behavior related to two variables: citizen responsibility and corruption, in a group of workers from the Mexican manufacturing industry. To make the ANOVA analysis, two variables are contrasted: gender and age. The conclusion is that women are more transparent and responsible than men. In the group of men, age differences do influence both variables. In the case of women there are no significant differences by age: both transparency and citizen responsibility show a higher perception.
