Just Out! Measures of Australia's Progress

By now LEP libraries will have received their copy of the 2004 edition of Measures of Australia's Progress (ABS cat.no. 1370.0).

Measures of Australia's Progress (MAP) combines key aspects of economic, environmental and social progress to measure whether life is improving in Australia - and at what rate. MAP considers the interrelationships between Australia's economy, its society and its environment.

The information is designed to provide for more informed public debate and to encourage all Australians to assess the bigger picture when contemplating progress.

The Australian Statistician, Dennis Trewin, won an award in October last year for the ABS' ground breaking work in producing MAP which was recognised for "making a significant and positive contribution to Australian life".

All LEP member libraries receive a print copy of MAP.
