The analysis in this chapter is based on the observation that an appropriate information system that coherently organizes data in digital form permits the production of inexpensive and effective summaries of the information contained therein. This fact represents an important departure with respect to current methods of obtaining quantitative information on governance. This chapter first discusses some relevant characteristics of the functions carried out by the publishing unit, so as to understand their implication for the production of policy-related statistics. It then discusses how the data-rich context of reputation-based governance could lend itself to innovative ways of analyzing public policies.
