This third edition of Government at a Glance: Latin America and the Caribbean, a joint project of the OECD and the IDB, addresses the growing demand for quantitative and qualitative evidence on the workings of governments in the Latin America and Caribbean (LAC) region.

The publication covers key aspects of public governance, allowing policy makers and citizens to analyse the performance of LAC governments and benchmark them against a broad range of other countries. This edition contains indicators on the entire production process of government, from inputs to processes to outcomes; and covers public finance and employment, budgeting practices and procedures, human resources management, regulatory governance, open government data, public procurement public integrity and core government results.
