This Information Paper presents the proposed progress indicators to be presented in the 2013 Measures of Australia’s Progress (MAP) publication (cat no. 1370.0), to be released in November 2013. The indicators presented in this paper have been developed to measure the aspirations that emerged from the MAP consultation process. Using the MAP consultation results as a conceptual basis for MAP 2013 enables the ABS to measure what Australians have told us matters most for national progress. The selection of the indicators to match these aspirations has been based on expert statistical advice to identify the best indicators that are currently available.
The paper includes:
- an overview of MAP and the recent consultation process (Section one);
- an explanation of the refreshed MAP framework (Section two); and
- the proposed list of progress indicators for MAP 2013 (Section three).
