14. The Performance of the Israeli Public Sector: A Citizens Survey and National Assessment (2009). Dr. Itai Beeri.


This is a first paperwork, dealing with following and reporting the performance of local governing authorities in Israel. Our main goal is to recognize the public's position regarding local services and executions and policy of central government towards local governing authorities. That, in order to develop deep thinking and explanations regarding processes in local governing and it's relationships with the central government. The report is based on reports of a sample of Israel's adult residents. This sample represents, at a large extent, the major sectors in Israel and we believe it can be based on in order to achieve the goals of the research.

Of these 5 parameters, Israel’s organizations in the public sector are ranked first at 3 of them and second at the remaining 2. Also, it shows that the Israeli organizations excel in creativity – 4.25 points out of 5. On the second place are the Slovakian organizations with an average of 4.21 and on the third place the Norwegian organizations with 4.08.
