Abstract


Transparency in government actions strengthens the relationship between government and society. The goal of the present study was to ascertain the level of transparency of administrative information in the south of Brazil. This descriptive study, which employed statistical methodology, found a correlation between the presence of examined indicators and municipal gross domestic product (GDP). It also revealed that population; GDP and tax revenues are variables that, if jointly analyzed, can be used to aggregate municipalities that display similar behavior in terms of transparency.
