Government at a Glance Southeast Asia 2019 is the first edition in the Government
at a Glance series for the region. It provides the latest available data on public
administrations in the 10 ASEAN member countries: Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, Indonesia,
Lao People’s Democratic Republic, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand
and Viet Nam. This publication includes indicators on public finance and economics,
public employment, budget practices and procedures, strategic human resources management,
digital government, open government and citizen satisfaction with public services.
Where possible, these data were compared against the OECD average and that of the
neighbouring OECD member countries, such as Australia, Korea, Japan and New Zealand. Each
indicator in the publication is presented in a user-friendly format, consisting of
graphs and/or charts illustrating variations across countries and over time, brief
descriptive analyses highlighting the major findings conveyed by the data, and a methodological
section on the definition of the indicator and any limitations in data comparability.
