Empirical data and information from the PAPI provides a realistic picture of the effectiveness of authorities at different levels in meeting people's needs and desires. The PAPI serves as a “mirror” to help authorities review their activities in a year, as well as creating a healthy competitive practice and a culture of learning experiences among local governments.
