What is ANDI?

Our aim is to introduce a holistic measure of national progress and wellbeing that reflects the values and priorities of Australians.

The Australian National Development Index (ANDI) will tell us, in a snapshot, how we are doing as a people, as communities and as a nation.

More than just a number, ANDI will reflect real life.

Informed by experts but defined by Australians, ANDI is both an idea and a tool designed to promote democracy and citizen voice.

"We are in the middle of a paradigm shift occurring around the world. We understand now, better than ever, that our wellbeing as peoples, and our progress as a nation, depends on much more than what economic measurements alone can tell us."

– Tim Costello, CEO, World Vision Australia
