image of Government at a Glance: How Hungary Compares

Government at a Glance: How Hungary Compares presents recent comparable data on key indicators of government activities and performance in Hungary, compared with its neighbouring countries (Austria, Czech Republic, Germany, Poland, Slovak Republic and Slovenia) as well as the OECD average. The main goal of this publication is to identify progress and persisting challenges in public sector reform in Hungary and to highlight some areas where public sector efficiency might be further improved in future years. It provides indicators on a wide range of government activities, including public finance management, public employment and pay, administrative burden for businesses, and the delivery of services in two key areas (health care and education).

Introduction

This introductory chapter provides background material to help the reader better understand the context of current public sector reforms in Hungary. It starts by presenting a series of indicators on the main macroeconomic aggregates (economic growth rate, unemployment rate, debt and deficit levels). It then discusses trust in government levels before and after the crisis, and public satisfaction levels with government services and institutions, as reported in international perception surveys.
