Industrial policy outcome evaluations– poor reliability (RiR 2020:30)

The Riksdag, government inquiries and the Swedish National Audit Office (Swedish NAO) have all emphasised that industrial policy outcomes should be evaluated to a greater extent. Policy outcome evaluation is important to ensure that central government resources are used efficiently and industrial policy objectives are achieved. However, it is not enough for evaluations to be carried out – they must be of high enough quality to be reliable. It is also important that good policy outcome evaluations are actually used by the Government to learn how best to design industrial policy.
