Performance Indicators

We use a number of indicators to measure our performance. These are split into input and impact indicators.

Input Indicators

Input indicators show what is being ‘bought’ with public money, i.e. the resources being invested into delivering the results that we and our partners are aiming to achieve.

Impact Indicators

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.


A measurement annex for the DCMS performance indicators with further information can be found on the DCMS website.
