Government at a Glance 2011

image of Government at a Glance 2011

This second edition of Government at a Glance more than doubles the number of available indicators of OECD governments’ performance. The indicators compare the political and institutional frameworks of government across OECD countries as well as government revenues and expenditures, employment, and compensation. They also include indicators describing government policies and practices on integrity, e-government and open government, and introduce several composite indexes summarising key aspects of public management practices in human resources management, budgeting, procurement, and regulatory management. For each figure, the book provides a dynamic link (StatLink) which direct the user to a web page where corresponding data are available in Excel® format. The report also offers two special chapters, on leveraged governance and on the policy implications of fiscal consolidation.

The 58 data sets of member and partner countries in this 2011 edition of Government at a Glance include the first ever international comparison of public sector pay for selected professions and public service occupations, which points to a fairly egalitarian pay structure in the public sector;  estimations of country-specific fiscal consolidation requirements, which have been found to be large in many countries; the level of disclosure of private interests in the three branches of government; and  the implementation gap of Open Government policies to promote transparency, efficiency and trust.

Hypothèses utilisées dans le modèle d'assainissement budgétaire

Cette annexe donne des informations concernant les hypothèses sur lesquelles repose le modèle utilisé pour estimer les efforts de consolidation budgétaire que les pouvoirs publics devront consentir pour stabiliser et réduire le ratio dette publique/PIB d’ici à 2026. Le modèle évalue les efforts d’assainissement budgétaire requis pour stabiliser et réduire les ratios dette brute/PIB. L’ampleur de ces efforts peut être différente si l’on considère les ratios dette nette/PIB. Les hypothèses étayent les données présentées dans l’indicateur 15 du chapitre IV (Prospective et direction stratégiques). Les données pour l’indicateur 15, ainsi que les informations présentées ici, sont tirées de la version provisoire des Perspectives économiques de l’OCDE no 89, publiées en mai 2011, et pourraient être révisées dans les éditions futures des Perspectives.
