The global economic crisis has shaken public confidence in governments.


The OECD’s latest Government at a Glance report looks at what governments can do to improve their effectiveness and efficiency while meeting the needs of citizens. It provides a dashboard of more than 50 indicators measuring government performance across the 34 member countries of the OECD.


Government at Glance will be presented by OECD Secretary-General Angel Gurría at 9.00 a.m. Wednesday 13 November 2013 at the OECD Conference Centre, Paris.


The latest edition of the report includes new topics such as Strategic Governance, with indicators on trust in institutions, risk management and the rule of law; Women in Government which analyses the participation of women in all areas of public life; and Serving Citizens, based on aspects such as access, responsiveness, reliability and satisfaction.  Recent surveys carried out on budget practices and procedures, performance budgeting, public procurement and compensation have contributed to a renewed set of indicators on these topics.


Journalists are welcome to attend the launch and to participate in the questions and answers session. To register or to request a copy of the report under embargo, please contact: news.contact@oecd.org.
