(26 March 2019) – Many people in OECD countries believe public services and social benefits are inadequate and hard to reach.


More than half say they do not receive their fair share of benefits given the taxes they pay, and two-thirds believe others get more than they deserve.

Nearly three out of four people say they want their government to do more to protect their social and economic security.

These are among the findings of a new OECD survey, “Risks that Matter”, which asked over 22,000 people aged 18 to 70 years old in 21 countries about their worries and concerns and how well they think their government helps them tackle social and economic risks.
