Government at a Glance Southeast Asia 2019 is the first edition in the Government at a Glance series for the region. It provides the latest available data on public administrations in the 10 ASEAN member countries: Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao People’s Democratic Republic, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Viet Nam. This publication includes indicators on public finance and economics, public employment, budget practices and procedures, strategic human resources management, digital government, open government and citizen satisfaction with public services. Where possible, these data were compared against the OECD average and that of the neighbouring OECD member countries, such as Australia, Korea, Japan and New Zealand.

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 conveyed by the data, and a methodological section on the definition of the indicator and any limitations in data comparability.



HRM practices composite indexes

This edition of Government at a Glance Southeast Asia 2019 included six composite indexes on human resource management (HRM) practices. They are: 1) delegation in human resources management practices; 2) staff performance assessments/appraisal; 3) performance-related pay; 4) recruitment systems in central government; 5) separate human resources practices for senior civil servants; and 6) data-informed HRM. Data used to construct the composite indexes were derived from the OECD survey on Strategic Human Resources Management and were collected from Southeast Asian countries in 2017-2018 and from OECD countries in 2016. Survey respondents were predominantly senior officials in central government HRM departments, and data refer only to HRM practices at the central government level.
