The focus of the paper is on selected comparative models in public administration (human research system, model based on the system of government and models of local government and territorial organization). The aim of this paper is to provide a more thorough view on public administration in the EU-28 countries and to assess the selected comparative approaches and the financial dimension according to the levels of public administra-tion. Evaluation of the selected indicators of financial dimension of public administration was carried out using the method of cluster analysis, whose outcomes confirmed the most notable differences between the EU-28 countries in the first and third cluster in fiscal decentralization of expenditure and in total general government expenditure.
