The main purpose of this study is to analyze interrelationships among variables used on the survey of public sector integrity by Indonesia’s Corruption Eradication Commission (Komisi Pemberantasan Korupsi, KPK). The nine variables include corruption experiences, corruption perceptions, working environments, administration systems, the behavior of individuals, corruption prevention efforts, integrity experiences, integrity potencies, and integrity total. Using factor analysis, the approach is to explain these variables in terms of their common underlying dimensions, well-known as factors. Technically, factor analysis involves condensing the information contained in a number of original variables into a smaller set of new composite factors with a minimum loss of information. The results show that based on eigen values the first factor alone accounts for 70.7% of the common variance. The second factor alone accounts for 13,4%. The common variance of the nine variables explained by two factors is 84.1%. Using the varimax rotation and based on values of factor loadings the first factor makes high contribution to the variance of corruption experiences, corruption perceptions, working environments, the behavior of individuals, integrity experiences, and integrity total variables. The second factor makes high contribution to the variance of corruption prevention efforts and integrity potencies variables. Similar results, also, are obtained by quartimax rotation and equamax rotation
