Government at a Glance 2017

Government at a Glance 2017 provides the latest available data on public administrations in OECD countries. Where possible, it also reports data for Brazil, China, Colombia, Costa Rica, India, Indonesia, Lithuania, the Russian Federation, and South Africa. This edition contains new indicators on public sector emploympent, institutions, budgeting practices and procedures, regulatory governance, risk management and communication, open government data and public sector innovation. This edition also includes for the first time a number of scorecards comparing the level of access, responsiveness and quality of services in three key areas: health care, education and justice.

Each indicator in the publication is presented in a user-friendly format, consisting of graphs and/or charts illustrating variations across countries and over time, brief descriptive analyses highlighting the major findings conveyed by the data, and a methodological section on the definition of the indicator and any limitations in data comparability. A database containing qualitative and quantitative indicators on government is available on line. It is updated twice a year as new data are released. The database, countries fact sheets and other online supplements can be found at www.oecd.org/gov/govataglance.htm.

Hide / Show Abstract

Today, many disparities and inequalities between the sexes appear to have become embedded, to a greater or lesser extent, in public policies and the allocation of public resources. Several international organisations and others have pioneered work to promote gender mainstreaming, i.e. including in the design and review of public policies an assessment of the differential impact of gender with the aim to progressively remove gender inequalities in the public sector and the wider economy. Gender budgeting is an application of gender mainstreaming in the budgetary process. It involves the integration of a clear gender perspective within the budget process, through the use of special processes and analytical tools, to promote gender-responsive policies with the aim of addressing gender inequalities and disparities.
