IPM goes on publishing government success index. For reminding, we measure Index of the efficiency of government activity which is nothing more than the government's current activities. Also in the scopes of this project, effect of government’s activities in 2-5 years perspective is also measured, we call it Success expectation indexand According to the base of 2 above-described indexes, government rate is measured by its activities. You can see more technical information below.
Index of the efficiency of government activity
Index is based on the attitude of the society towards the steps taken in this or that field within a month.
The diagram below shows that the meaning of index is still highest for healthcare field (index-67). Police activities is also evaluated as above-average, for which the index is 62 Survey revealed distinctly negative results in Economical activity (index-33), Territorial integrity (index-32) and especially in field of Employment (index-26).
The table below shows the Government’s general rating on 5-point scale.
|We identified the key fields, success in which, most significantly contributes to the population’s general satisfaction with Government activity. These fields are:
Success expectation index
We asked the respondents if the situation in different fields will deteriorate, improve or stay the same under Government’s current policies and reforms.
As we can see, index value for all of the fields is close to 0. Considering the wording of the question, such index value indicates that the population has neither hope for improvement nor expectations of deterioration. In other words, if the Government’s activity stays the same, situation in all of the fields will either insignificantly improve or stay as it is now.
Government Activity Rating
Government activity rate is formed on the bases of the two indexes given above.
Government activity rate is below-avarage for every research topic. Healthcare field is traditionally distinguished by highest meaning of index – 47. Extremely low rate is observed in Employment, Economical activity and Territorial integrity.
