Australian Social Progress Index
Beyond GDP, the Australian Social Progress Index is an online resource that gives governments the ability to measure their State or Territory’s progress towards meeting people’s basic needs and foundations for wellbeing.
By comparing the jurisdictions and tracking them over time, the index will reveal which areas are flourishing and where there are gaps.
