Subnational Data Requirements for Fiscal Decentralization: Case Studies from Central and Eastern Europe Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The need for subnational demographic, social, economic, and fiscal data in designing effective intergovernmental fiscal systems is becoming increasingly evident. In Central and Eastern European countries, the legacy of the region's communist past are information systems rooted in the centralized economy. Such an approach becomes less acceptable as economic issues become more complex and subnational governments in these transition economies become responsible for the delivery of local services. As political imperatives support increasingly democratic forms of governance in which people's needs must be taken into account in the design of policy options, there is a need for information systems that provide data to allow policymakers and citizens to assess the outcomes of policy choices. Subnational Data Requirements for Fiscal Decentralization summarizes the findings of needs assessment activities in five demonstration countries that are at different stages of fiscal decentralization: Bulgaria, Romania, the Slovak Republic, Slovenia, and Ukraine. These assessments are part of a program on subnational statistical capacity building, launched by the World Bank Institute, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, and the Economic Development Center of the Soros Foundation.

Book News Annotation:

The decentralization of fiscal policy-making in Central and Eastern Europe has not been accompanied by systems designed to provide important data to regional governments responsible for fiscal decisions. The World Bank Institute, the Organization for Co- operation and Development, and the Economic Development Center of the Soros Foundation conducted needs assessment studies for Bulgaria, Romania, the Slovak Republic, Slovenia, and the Ukraine, focusing on the need to increase of the countries' capacities to collect subnational-level demographic, social, economic, and fiscal data and use them in designing policies to address regional disparities. The results of those studies are summarized here.
