Productivity measurement case study: Courts
1 December 2017
This case study develops productivity measures for New Zealand’s court system following the approach described in Measuring and improving state sector productivity draft report. The approach relies exclusively on publicly available data. A particular focus of this case study is the limitations in existing publicly available data, and how these limitations affect the utility of productivity measures. As noted in Measuring and improving state sector productivity draft report, in the case of the court system, these limitations are significant.
This paper was prepared for the Commission's inquiry into state sector productivity inquiry.
