An understanding of genuine progress requires multi-dimensional measurement. Each of these dimensions is a ‘domain’. Within a domain, there are numerous specific indicators of
Within a domain there will be many specific indicators of progress: in health, for example, we would probably want to measure both actual health and sickness outcomes for people, but also the quality or availability of health services. Consultations will help to test and refine the key progress domains and will steer the information that should be captured within each domain. The domains will reflect what Australians believe are the key elements of wellbeing and progress. Results of indicators in each domain will be publicly released. The intention is to provide complete data to the public to enable further research of key areas of progress.
In time, indicators within each domain may be reviewed in aggregate or as ‘disaggregated’ datasets. This will allow a national view as well as some local, regional and state level breakdowns. It may even be possible to review indicators based on different social groupings, such as age, gender, health and socio-economic status.
In this way, our national progress can take account of the differences in impacts and experiences in different regions and social groupings.
