Abstract: This report examines the use and influence of sustainable development indicators. The focus is on the role of indicators in assessing national and EU-level sustainable development strategies. The use of indicators is assessed through three country studies in Finland, Malta and Slovakia, all of which have developed such indicators and strategies during the past decade. The use is explored through document analysis and interviews of developers, regulators and other civil servants and other expected end-users.  Attention is given to the characteristics and relevance of the indicators and to the motivation to use indicators. Based on the results the methods used to produce, disseminate and communicate the indicators are discussed. Barriers to their use and potential ways to increase and improve the use are investigated. Finally, conclusions are formulated in order to enhance and enrich the use of indicators.
