SUMMARY OF THE 2013 LIST OF ESA FOR AUSTRALIA

The final list consists of 74 statistics, 9 of which were identified as informing multiple pillars, and 11 statistics informing multiple dimensions within the one pillar. Table 1 (below) provides a summary of the 2013 list of ESA for Australia, and how they inform each dimension and pillar of the organising framework.

Within the 74 essential statistics, the list highlights a total of 178 distinct datasets. These are made up from different sources, across all levels of government. Of the 178 datasets included in the list, 76 (43%) are held by the ABS, whilst 84 (47%) are held by other Australian Government agency custodians. Eighteen datasets are the combination of state and territory datasets, and whilst no datasets are currently the custody of local government agencies, some result from local government collected data.

The ABS datasets have a slightly stronger focus on the economic pillar, whilst the environmental pillar has a larger representation from other Australian Government agencies. The state and territory datasets are more heavily focused on the social pillar, with the majority of them informing social statistics.

The complete version of the 2013 list of ESA for Australia is included in Appendix 1. It also includes additional information to assist in understanding the headings of the list. The list is sorted alphabetically within each pillar. Where statistics inform multiple pillars, the predominant pillar was identified first to assist in sorting the list to avoid duplication.
