We use a number of indicators to measure our performance. These are split into input and impact indicators.
Input indicators show what is being ‘bought’ with public money, that is the resources being invested into delivering the results that we and our partners are aiming to achieve.
Impact indicators give information on the outcomes of our work. They reflect the quality and effectiveness of the programmes and priorities set out in our business plan and the impact they have on society. They provide a broad picture of performance, with a particular focus on whether fairness is being improved.
For performance indicators prior to July 2012 see our Business Plan Quarterly Data Summary.
