Democracy

ASPECTS OF DEMOCRACY AND CITIZENSHIP

Indicators that provide a picture of the level of involvement of residents in determining the type of society in which they live, over and above the minimum of voting in political elections provide important insights into the progress of democracy, governance and citizenship. For example, a community where residents participate in civic or political groups, devote a significant portion of their time to volunteer activities, or invest in environmentally-friendly industries, may be more resilient and will contain many bonds between individuals and groups, including across generations.

The following section looks at voter turnout in elections, civic participation, people who volunteer for management work, to sit on committees or manage a service program, and Australians' environmental citizenship.
