SECTION TWO: THE REFRESHED MAP FRAMEWORK

The ABS has worked to clarify and define the central concepts of the aspirations that emerged from the consultation (see Appendix B for a list of MAP themes and aspiration statements). This process focused on ensuring conciseness, conceptual precision and clarity to ensure the results could provide a clear pathway to designing relevant measures.

The resulting MAP framework articulates the central concepts in four domains: Society, Economy, Environment and Governance. Under each of these domains sit the relevant aspirations, themes and elements that emerge from them. Figure 1 shows the domains and summarised aspirations (i.e. themes) Australians thought important for national progress.

The MAP framework serves two key purposes for the overall MAP product. It:

  • identifies and clearly articulates broad areas of life that are important to Australians for national progress; and
  • provides conceptual elements that point towards progress measures.

Figure shows the domains and themes of the MAP framework.
