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

Growing expectations of open and fair public decision making, particularly following the financial and economic crisis, have put mounting pressure on governments to ensure that official decisions are not improperly affected by private interests. At the same time, new forms of partnership between governments and the private and non-profit sectors increase the complexity for policy makers and public managers in ensuring integrity of these transactions. Safeguarding the integrity of government decision making is therefore essential for restoring trust in government.
