Worldwide Bureaucracy Indicators (2000+)
Cross-national dataset on public sector employment & wages that examines the personnel dimensions of state capability, the footprint of the public sector within the overall labor market, and the fiscal implications of the public sector wage bill. Derived from administrative data & household surveys, thereby complementing existing, expert perception-based approaches. Encompasses 3 categories of variables: the characteristics of public-sector employment, wages and compensations of these, and the overall wage bill. Together, these provide an important, albeit narrow, picture of the skills & incentives of bureaucrats. Indicators on public employment track key demographic characteristics including the size of the public sector workforce, their age, and distributions across genders & academic qualifications. Variables on compensation capture both the competitiveness of public sector wages (compared to the private sector) as well as wage differentials across occupation, gender, education, and income quintiles within the public & private sectors. The indicators on the size of the wage bill offer a glimpse into the structure & affordability of the public sector within the larger economy.
