According to the report, ‘Trust’ can be defined as “positive perception about the actions of an individual or an organization”. The report adds that ‘positive perception’ is determined ‘by subjective assessment of individuals’.

The report also says, “Trust in government leads to greater compliance with regulations and the tax system, facilitates social and political consensus, enhances the acceptance of policies that call for short-term sacrifices by citizens, and mobilises citizen engagement to enable open and inclusive governance processes.”

It also says that trust in the government can also have effects on the government’s effectiveness and the economic development of a country.

The report placed the Britain way down the line with a mere 41 percent people having faith in their government, the US was rolled further down the line with a diminutive 30 percent of the people having trust in the Trump administration.
