If you cant measure it, you can not improve it! Counting is an essential function of modern states - a state that is not able to measure its core functions performance can be seen as having lost the ability to fulfill them Counting is essential for democratic governance: figures can be challenged by opposition parties and civil society; figures can and frequently dobecome a focal point for processes of public opinion sensitization. Counts produce political debates and influence the complex establishment of priorities. Counting is not purely technical, but rather a highly political process.
