MAP 2013 and the recent consultation

You're currently browsing the 2013 edition of Measures of Australia's Progress (MAP). This edition contains an enhanced progress measurement framework based on a national consultation. The refreshed progress indicators have been selected to align with the aspirations and hopes Australians told us they have for Australia's future. The results of the consultation and the subsequent information paper are provided below (N.B. a full list of the final MAP 2013 indicators is available on the Data and downloads page):

Over the years there have been a number of features articles published in MAP that you may also find of interest:
Australian indicator projects
There are many indicator projects underway across Australia focussed on measuring aspects of Australian life, including societal progress; wellbeing; and sustainability. The map below provides an indication of some of that activity, although it is by no means comprehensive. We've included it to show the extent of the initiatives occurring at the state and territory, local government and community level. We aim to update this list as new projects evolve and are formed.

You can find out more about some of these initiatives in the State, territory and community contributors section of Aspirations for our Nation.

International indicator projects

There are many statistical initiatives underway globally that aim to bring together broader measures of societal well-being or progress. The map below provides an indication of some of that activity, although it is by no means comprehensive. We've included it to show the extent of the initiatives occurring internationally. We aim to update this list as new projects evolve and are formed.
