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

Government revenues are collected differently across levels of government, as the central, state and local levels hold different abilities to levy taxes and collect social contributions. The extent to which revenues are transferred between levels provides an indication of the financial interdependence among levels of government. The amount of taxes collected by sub-central governments can be considered a proxy for their fiscal autonomy.
