Indicator used for response monitoring ?
Threshold / Standard
"Public sector" refer to sectors funded by a government budget at all levels of government, from national to local, within the defined areas affected by the crisis. "Available" refers to those being employed on regular basis of at least one month tenure. Data for this indicator can be available either at the administrative offices, the office where they should be working, or at the treasury.
Guidance on phases
Phase 1: Different data collection modules: i) To the extent possible obtain official figure from the treasury at central level or local level if possible; ii) Figures can be obtained from the media. Where possible obtain numbers of personnel from at least three separate sources and take the average. Obtain at least global data and disaggregated by sectors only when possible. Phase 2: Obtain data from authoritative / formal sources, determine the number at pre crisis level of employment, determine number at current level. Phase 3: Obtain data from authoritative / formal sources and corroborate with other formal reports/records. Phase 4: Conduct In-depth analysis based on formal records of the government disaggregated by sectors
Guidance for pre-crisis/baseline
Data is usually available from past government reports or census.
Number of public sector employees is one of crucial proxy indicators to the functioning of government in post crisis setting. Personnel management or human resources is a key component of public sector. As public sectors employees are often also affected by critical events, their availability is also affected. As situation stabilizes more employees are reaching the pre-crisis level.
