Abstract

Recent academic literature has addressed whether adjustment of reported financial performance (i.e. earnings management) occurs in municipalities. However, although this is a highly political environment where incentives for such manipulation are likely to exist, the majority of previous studies have neglected political explanatory factors. This paper extends the literature by examining the relationship between political competition and adjustments of reported financial performance in Swedish municipalities.
