Government at a Glance 2009

image of Government at a Glance 2009
The actions and policies of government touch our daily lives in countless ways. Quantifying and measuring government actions can help leaders make better decisions, and can help to hold government accountable to its citizens. 

Government at a Glance is a new, biennial publication of the OECD providing over 30 indicators describing government performance. It compares the political and institutional frameworks of government across OECD countries, as well as government revenues, expenditures and employment. It also includes indicators describing government policies and practices in integrity, e-government and open government, and introduces several composite indexes summarising key aspects of public management practices in human resource management, budgeting and regulatory management. For each figure, the book provides a dynamic link (StatLink) which directs the user to a web page where the corresponding data are available in Excel® format.

Detailed Data from the 2009 Survey on Integrity

This Annex provides data for each country on how core values are communicated to central government employees; the types of private interests that they require central government decision makers to disclose as well as the level of transparency; procedures in place for public officials to report misconduct or suspected corruption; and the types of protection offered to whistle-blowers. Data are from the OECD 2000 and 2009 Survey on Integrity. Respondents to the survey were OECD member country delegates in charge of integrity in central government.
