This third edition of Government at a Glance Latin America and the Caribbean provides the latest available evidence on public administrations and their performance in the LAC region and compares it to OECD countries. This publication includes indicators on public finances and economics, public employment, centres of government, regulatory governance, open government data, public sector integrity, public procurement and for the first time core government results (e.g. trust, inequality reduction). Governance indicators are especially useful for monitoring and benchmarking governments' progress in their public sector reforms. 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 of the data, and a methodological section on the definition of the indicator and any limitations in data comparability.

Competition-friendly regulatory environment: The PMR indicators

A competition-friendly regulatory environment in goods and service markets can help boost living standards. Competition can raise output per capita by encouraging companies to be more innovative and efficient, thereby lifting productivity, and by increasing investment and fostering entry by new firms. Pro-competition regulatory reforms may also help to reduce income inequality. In order to achieve such results, regulations must be designed in a way that enhances competition and lowers barriers to entry.
