Government at a Glance 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, health and justice. Government at a Glance also includes indicators on key governance and public management issues, such as transparency in governance, regulatory governance, public procurement and the implementation of employment and remuneration reforms since 2009. 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.

Student performance and equity in education

The quality of education and school systems is reflected in their ability to provide students with the knowledge and skills necessary to achieve their full potential. The PISA survey measures once every three years the performance of 15-year-old students in reading, mathematics and science in more than 60 countries. It allows a comparison not only of average national scores but also of the equity of the results among children and schools within each country (PISA, 2012). The last wave of the PISA survey in 2012 focussed particularly on assessing performance in -mathematics.
