The Viet Nam Provincial Governance and Public Administration Performance Index PAPI 2013
Measuring Citizens’ Experiences
During the past five years, the Viet Nam Provincial Governance and Public Administration Performance Index (PAPI) has captured and reflected the experiences of nearly 50,000 citizens in the country. PAPI is a pioneering initiative that has become the largest time-series national governance and public administration performance monitoring tool in Viet Nam exclusively based on citizens experiences. These annual and nationwide iterations of PAPI provide ‘real-time’ data and information on the implementation of complex, yet key governance and public administration processes as Vietnamese citizens experience them.
Overall, the three years of nationwide evidence collected by PAPI displays a great deal of stability and consistency in scores annually. The remarkable consistency in dimension scores in 2013 once again provides reassurance on the robustness of data collection and reliability of the sample frame and methodology.
