‘A Survey of Citizens’ Perception of Public Administration’ has been conducted by Korea Institute of Public Administration every three year since 1992 in order to collect basic data about Korean citizens' ideas and attitudes of government management for government innovation and academic research. The study used a questionnaire survey method, where 1000 citizens over 20 years of age were polled using a proportional stratified sampling method. The survey included questions about administrative service experience, citizen participation, degrees of satisfaction and trust in administrative services and government, views about the roles of government, government spending, politics, society at large and social activities, as well as public servants.As a result of the time-series analysis, there was a growing awareness that government spending should be reduced for each sector, except for education and national pension. Finally, the perception for public officials still remained high. In addition, public officials were more likely to receive higher status, guarantee of social position, and old age pension than private enterprise workers.
