Abstract
Adopting the Perry’s public service motivation scale and Coursey ? Pandys’ classification method of three-dimensions, the paper investigates the public service motivation of civil servants in the basic level government in Kunming city, Yunnan province. In a word, the paper drew the following conclusion: (1) the dimension of attraction to policy making has relative high score. The administrative post has not significant influence on the dimension of attraction to policy making which is not similar to other research; (2) the dimension of commitment to the public interest and sacrifice has relative high score, but the self-sacrifice spirit of civil servants in Kunming city is not good due to the sample structure which includes 65.6% contract personnel and temporary employees; (3) the dimension of compassion has relative high score which is not corresponding to other research.
