Believe it or not, the most common use of keeping keystrokes was for employee evaluation. I remember weekly postings of graphs of "keystrokes/hour" in data entry and word processing departments, with a weekly "prize" [nominal value] for the "best" data entry operator of the week.

This and similar productivity measurement measures were not uncommon.
