Open budget survey

109 indicators used to measure budget

Speaking during the launch of the survey on Wednesday, Institute of National Affairs director, Paul Barker, said these indicators assess whether the central government makes eight key budget documents available to the public online in a timely manner and whether these documents present budget information in a comprehensive and useful way.

According to the survey, Papua New Guinea’s 50 out of 100 is moderately higher than the global average score of 42.

This means each country receives a composite score (out of 100) that determines its ranking on the Open Budget Index.
