                                                         EEA and Norway Grants 2009-2014


Indicators define a measure of change for the results identified and provide objective evidence that this change is occurring. When well chosen, they
convey whether key objectives are achieved. Indicators tell us by what standard a result will be measured. It is important that an indicator can be
measured consistently over time. Once the indicators have been chosen, baselines and target have to be established. A baseline is the value of an
indicator before the implementation of programmes, while a target is the specific, planned level of results to be achieved within an explicit
timeframe.

The list of standard indicators consists mainly of quantitative indicators. However, to get a full picture of the outcome or output, it may be necessary
to add some more qualitative indicators. We have suggested some below and they are marked with a * symbol and yellow highlighting. By nature,
much qualitative data are more subjective than quantitative data. While quantitative surveys can be administered to more people in a shorter time
(breadth), qualitative interviews probe for more information from fewer individuals (depth). Quantitative data gathering is often simpler and thus
less costly than the qualitative. However, it is not always possible to gather quantifiable information and a qualitative approach must be taken.

Standard indicators are used primarily for reporting purposes and they should produce data that can be aggregated across many similar programmes
in different beneficiary states, however if the standard indicators are not suitable for measuring the achievements of the Programme, the
Programme Operator must identify other suitable indicators and justify these in the Programme proposal. Please refer to section 3.5 of the
Programme Operators’ Manual.

Indicators shall be defined during the development of the Programme proposal. The Donor State(s) may find it necessary to ask the Programme
Operator to include additional indicators after the portfolio of Programmes has been established across the Beneficiary States. This will entail
procedures to modify the Programme in line with Article 5.9 of the Regulations.
