Public sector

The part of the 

Economy

 concerned with providing basic government services. The 

Composition

 of the 

Public sector

 varies by country, but in most countries the 

Public sector

 includes such services as the police, military, 

Public

 roads, 

Public

 transit, primary education and healthcare for the poor. The 

Public sector

 might provide services that non-payer cannot be excluded from (such as street lighting), services which 

Benefit

 all of society rather than just the individual who uses the service (such as 

Public

 education), and services that encourage equal opportunity.
