Indicators are much wanted but less often used


•    Indicators have been around for a good while,
     but the indicator industry has really boomed in
     the past 20 years
•    Sustainable development indicators, societal
     progress, well-being indicators, beyond GDP…
•    Most initiaves have concentrated on indicator
     development, selection and data collection
•    Most processes are technocratic and specialist
     driven
•    Lately many have asked ”who is actually using
     the indicators?”
So, who is using the indicators? Why or why not?


20 interviews in spring 2008:


•   Members of the parliament
•   Assistants of the MPs
•   Civil servants
•   Journalists
•   Teachers
•   Researchers
•   Regional decision-makers
•   Consultants
•   Press officers


                                                   25.09.12
Five central problems emerged:


1.   ”There is a lot information, but I can’t
     find it”
2.   ”The information is too old”
3.   ”Information does not match the user
     needs”
4.   ”The information is too complicated”
5.   ”The information is not policy relevant”
