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.


HRM practices composite indexes

This edition of Government at a Glance: Western Balkans included two composite indexes on human resource management (HRM) practices. They are: 1) delegation in human resources management practices; and 2) separate human resources practices for senior civil servants. Data used to construct the composite indexes were derived from 2019 Survey for the Western Balkans on Strategic Human Resources Management and the data for the OECD averages from the 2016 OECD survey on Strategic Human Resources Management. Survey respondents were predominantly senior officials in central government HRM departments, and data refer only to HRM practices at the central government level.
