Once domains are settled, advisory groups will be established for each domain. These groups will comprise eminent people and leaders in each area.
In collaboration with the Board and the technical advisory committee, domain groups will have primary responsibility for deciding on the contents of sub-indices and the weightings of measures collected. This will largely be based on community views about progress expressed through consultation in addition to data availability. Domain groups will also have lead responsibility for research and development of special reports into issues in their domains. These groups provide opportunities for partners to provide active support for ANDI.
Participation in these groups will be through open selection processes and selected on the basis of merit. Domain groups will report through the ANDI Director, but will also have relations with the Board, advisory committees and will be supported by ANDI staff, particularly in research tasks.
A specialised ABS officer in the area of statistics will be available to support domain groups.
