About MAP

HOW DOES MAP DIFFER FROM OTHER PUBLICATIONS?

The ABS already provides a rich array of statistics relevant to assessing progress through its many data releases. However, the very size of that information base means it is not necessarily readily accessible to many people.

ABS products provide an insight into one or a few aspects of life – say, health, education, income or biodiversity. A more complete picture of progress considers these aspects of life together.

MAP is unique in that it brings a digestible selection of statistical evidence together from across all of these areas. The ABS hopes this will assist Australians to make their own assessment of whether life in Australia is getting better, and that readers are encouraged to gather more information from the full range of ABS and non-ABS publications to supplement this assessment.
