The inequality of performance measurements

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Performance measurement systems are cast as significant responses to contemporary public demands for government accountability for social spending and social programs. Performance measurements are then critiqued as inadequate measures of social program quality, as inadequate representations of program quality, and as at odds with evaluative processes that advance the ideals of deliberative democracy.
