Evaluation & Measurement

Evidence on what works and why is sparse in anti-corruption. Find guidance on how to improve evaluations and measurement tools to inform policy and programme design.

The U4’s thematic work on evaluation and measurement addresses the lack of credible evidence on outcomes of anti-corruption interventions, which means that reforms can underperform or fail, or succeed without rewards. Understand how evaluations of anti-corruption activities can be improved and how to use measurement tools correctly.

Using Micro-Surveys to Measure and Explain Corruption

This paper discusses survey techniques aimed at a better measurement of corruption at the micro-level and argues that with appropriate survey methods and interview techniques, it is possible to collect quantitative micro-level data on corruption.

These surveys permit measurement of corruption at the level of individual agents, such as schools, health clinics, or firms. They also permit the study of mechanisms responsible for corruption, including capture of public funds and bribery
