Introduction

This working paper briefly sets out the background to the current project and reviews in detail seven key empirical studies, which examined the behaviour of politicians as ‘end-users’ of performance metrics. In addition to considering main findings, the review has been used to examine alternative research designs and methods, which may be employed in the current study and to identify behavioural explanations which may be of relevance to the current study.
