The government benchmark includes government organizations from all levels of government - from local councils to national bodies.
We consider this an emerging benchmark: it has enough data available for us to use bootstrapping to create a representative sample. As the sample grows in size, some scores may slightly change. Our research has shown that our bootstrapped scores are consistent with our standard benchmarks. Read more about the methodology.
