A Comparative Study of Good Government in EU Regions
Chapter 7: Variation in sub-national QoG in Romania
Mapping QoG with regional indices reveals the benefits of going beyond the boundaries of mere ordinal assessment of the institutions’ performance. The EQI index in real number form meets the need to gather all possible information about the intensity of the frictions that render the institutions more or less dysfunctional. Between ‘good’ and ‘bad’ institutions lies an entire range of shades that stem from tiny, barely observable factors. Rough aggregation into performance categories would obscure this information, known to insiders but not to outside observers.
