An attempt has been made to examine the impact of corruption on GDP per capita through a migration channel for a sample of 94 developed and developing countries from 1996 to 2010 using cross section and panel data estimation techniques. Our results show that corruption reduces GDP per capita through a migration channel after controlling for other variables. Our analysis suggests that if emigration is increasing due to rampant corruption, this would not have any significant macroeconomic impact on GDP per capita. Therefore, governments of these economies must revisit their policies and control corruption.
