This report aims to identify new developments in the administration of central government that lead to better value for money: better services at lower costs for the taxpayers.




This chapter provides statistical data about government employment and public expenditures and revenues in the participating countries. Employment is divided over administrative employment and in-kind service delivery employment. Administrative employment is divided over the tasks of government and the types of government administration in accordance with the snapshot of the public administration. Government employment is presented in full time equivalents (FTEs) per 1 000 inhabitants and as a percentage of domestic employment. Differences between countries are analysed in connection with institutional arrangements, such as rates of decentralisation and organisation of health care and social services in the corporate or general government sector.
