Government at a Glance 2013

Government at a Glance 2013 provides readers with a dashboard of key indicators assembled with the goal of contributing to the analysis and international comparison of public sector performance. Indicators on government revenues, expenditures, and employment are provided alongside key output and outcome data in the sectors of education and health. Government at a Glance also includes indicators on key governance and public management issues, such as transparency in governance, regulatory governance, new ways in delivering public services and HRM and compensation practices in the public service. While measuring government performance has long been recognized as playing an important role in increasing the effectiveness and efficiency of the public administration, following the economic crisis and fiscal tightening in many member countries, good indicators are needed more than ever to help governments make informed decisions regarding tough choices and help restore confidence in government institutions.

Hide / Show Abstract

The impact of basic public goods and services like education, health care and justice on citizens’ lives depends significantly on the extent to which intended recipients are able to access and consume them. The accessibility of public services can be considered a performance criterion for governments, reflecting their capacities to accurately recognise the diversity and nature of different needs, create and tailor delivery and communication channels accordingly, and ensure equity and fairness in delivery and distribution.
