Community Indicators Victoria (CIV)
‘[A vibrant, resilient and sustainable community’s] members are physically and mentally healthy, have a sense of well-being, are connected to others and have access to a range of services.’ – Community Indicators Victoria
Originally developed by the Victorian Community Indicators Project commissioned by VicHealth in 2005-06, Community Indicators Victoria (CIV) was one of the first community indicator projects established in Australia. The project began with extensive consultation with local and state governments and academics, and a literature review, which formed the basis for developing a framework of statistical indicators for measuring the well-being of Victorians. CIV aims to be a resource centre supporting the development and use of community well-being indicators by local governments and communities. The framework covers a set of almost 80 community well-being indicators covering a broad spectrum of local community life:
Community Resilience in Queensland and Community Indicators Queensland (CIQ)
Community Resilience in Queensland is a database and information portal providing community resilience indicators and data at a local level for three pilot communities in Queensland: Tablelands Regional Council area; Rockhampton Regional Council area; and the township of Chinchilla in the Western Downs Regional Council area. It uses the draft Community Indicators Queensland (CIQ) framework as a foundation, and the indicators selected aim to provide a snapshot of resilience at a particular point in time across these three communities.
Community Indicators Queensland (CIQ) brings together leading agencies from local, Queensland and Commonwealth governments, the not-for-profit sector, and Griffith University researchers. It is an ongoing project with a formal steering committee, and is developing a framework, database and web interface to support the creation and use of local community well-being indicators. It aims to provide a platform for: investigating the measurement of policy effectiveness; community engaged policy making; and the development and implementation of national and international community well-being indicator frameworks. CIQ builds on lessons learnt from Community Indicators Victoria and incorporates Queensland’s distinctive needs and attributes. It aims to enable the community to engage democratically in the development of their local environment.
