Our coverage begins with a consideration of the rationale for public reporting, followed by a consideration of its effects on different groups of stakeholders. We then examine some of the measurement issues involved, and outline what is known about what to report, and how to report it. The currently small literature on public reporting in mental health is reviewed. We conclude with a broad summary of what the literature appears to be telling us, and some of its implications on how work on this priority area should proceed. Most of the relevant literature is from overseas, hence the strongly international flavour
