About this questionnaire

The content of the 2022 database was collected using an online questionnaire and a glossary was also provided.

The 2022 dataset provides information on the following topics:

  • PART I - Context (questions 1 to 4)
  • PART II - Institutional framework (questions 5 to 8)
  • PART III - Approaches and tools (questions 9 to 12)
  • PART III - Accountability and transparency (questions 13 to 17)
  • PART III - Enabling environment (questions 18 to 20)
  • PART IV - Impact (questions 21 to 25)

The 2022 database comprises responses from all 38 OECD countries and the data refers only to central/federal government practices as of 1 March 2022. Respondents were predominantly budget officials within central budget authorities. The content of the database draws heavily upon self-reporting from governments representing the country’s own assessment of current practices and procedures. The OECD has conducted a data cleaning process checking for internal and external consistency and reliability in the survey responses.

Preliminary results were presented at the 6th Annual Meeting of the OECD Gender Budgeting Network 2022, 22-23 September 2022 in Paris.
