Observatory on public management

We invite you to visit our partner site GUO, in it you can find an evaluation of 204 countries and 16 regions.

On this page we present the result of the processing of official data related to health, education, security, economy, environment and infrastructure. We analyze the evolution over time of the selected indicators within these areas and develop a global index that summarizes the results by country.




The objective of every Government is to improve the quality of life of its citizens, and ours is to assist them through the management process.

The Management Observatory is made up of the 15 most populated cities in Spain.

The objective is to be able to monitor the evolution of the quality of life in cities from the perspective of public managements.

We consider Municipal Data Offices as the heart of any organization, since it allows to assess in a reliable manner the quality of life experienced by the citizens. Furthermore, it is an essential tool for decision makers to quickly identify and diagnose specific areas to work on, and then to measure the obtained results. Due to the importance of data in promoting local managements, we make a strong emphasis of the individual capacity of each local government on processing their own data. We based our analysis on public data reported by the respective city councils.

In the following you will find links to different areas involved in the assessment of specific local administrations.
Alicante – Barcelona – Bilbao – Córdoba – Gijón – Las Palmas – Madrid – Málaga – Murcia – Palma – Sevilla – Valencia – Valladolid – Vigo – Zaragoza
