NEF Report, 2009: Seven principles for measuring what matters: A guide to effective public policy-making



"This report offers a set of principles for policy-makers that are a distillation of the findings of nef’s Measuring What Matters programme. The programme set out to develop ways of measuring and valuing that will help to build effective public services. Investment in public services has increased since the foundation of the welfare state in the 1940s, yet economic inequality is wider now than it was 60 years ago. The research, across three very different policy areas – economic development, children in care and criminal justice – found that making visible and valuing the outcomes that matter most to individuals, communities and society leads to more informed policy-making."
