About Measures of Australia's Progress

Behind the scenes of Measures of Australia's Progress - all you need to know

This publication is designed to help Australians address the question, 'Is life in Australia getting better?' Measures of Australia's Progress (MAP) provides a digestible selection of measures in answer to this question. Australians can use this evidence to form their own view of how our country is progressing. This 2013 release presents a refreshed set of indicators and new areas of progress, based on a public consultation process. A copy of the consultation report can be found here.

This comprehensive version of Measures of Australia's Progress (cat no. 1370.0) provides a more detailed set of progress indicators than the annual summary publication of MAP Measures of Australia's Progress: Summary Indicators (cat. no. 1370.0.55.001).
