Measuring performance

Government performance can be measured in a number of ways: by those of us on the outside applying our own measures; by government having its own performance framework; by comparing the UK government with other countries or by asking the public what they think.

We explain what each of these measures can tell us about the performance of government. 

Here you can explore our topical explainers, updated to reflect new government data releases, read the Whitehall Monitor annual report chapter and read the latest expert comment from the Whitehall Monitor team.
