image of Government at a Glance: Western Balkans

Government at a Glance: Western Balkans presents information on public governance in the Western Balkan region – covering Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, Montenegro, North Macedonia, and Serbia, and compares it to OECD and OECD-EU countries. This first regional edition features 40 indicators on public finance, public employment, centre of government, budgeting practices and procedures, human resources management, public procurement, digital government, core government results and serving citizens. Governance indicators provide important benchmarks on public administration systems, practices and performance. Indicators are presented in a user-friendly format using charts, with brief descriptive analyses of the major findings, and a methodological section on the definition of the indicator and any limitations in data comparability.



Structure of general government expenditures

In order to carry out the main functions of providing individual and collective goods and services to the population, governments spend public resources in various ways, such as by making transfers (e.g. subsidies and social benefits) and purchasing goods and services (e.g. vaccines). Disaggregating expenditures by economic transaction helps to identify government priorities, the type of service delivery model (e.g. direct provision or outsourcing), and the size of financial commitments.
