Abstract:

Many regulations mandate government employees to inspect economic entities on a regular basis. In this paper we show that a small innovation in inspection technology can make substantial differences in inspection outcomes. For restaurant hygiene inspections, the state of Florida has introduced a hand-held electronic device, a portable digital assistant (PDA), which reminds inspectors of about 1,000 potential violations. Using administrative data on inspections from July 2003 to June 2009, we find that the adoption of PDAs led to 16% more detected violations. Subsequently, restaurants increased their compliance effort, but the response was neither immediate nor large enough to offset the initial PDA impact. Nevertheless, the heightened compliance induced by use of PDAs has contributed to reducing the risk of restaurant-related foodborne disease outbreaks.
