Open Budget Survey

The International Budget Partnership’s Open Budget Survey (OBS) is the world’s only independent, comparable measure of budget transparency, participation, and oversight.

The Open Budget Survey 2015 examines 102 countries from around the world, measuring three aspects of how governments are managing public finances.

Budget transparency: the amount, level of detail, and timeliness of budget information governments are making publicly available. Each country is given a score between 0 and 100 that determines its ranking on the Open Budget Index.

Budget participation: the opportunities governments are providing to civil society and the general public to engage in decisions about how public resources are raised and spent.


Budget oversight: the capacity and authority of formal institutions (such as legislatures and supreme audit institutions) to understand and influence how public resources are being raised and spent.
