About MAP


Measures of Australia's Progress continues to evolve and a number of changes have been incorporated into this edition:

  • The publication is now entirely electronic, supported by a hard copy brochure. This has allowed us to use data visualisation tools to enhance the graphs. See How do I navigate this product? for details on how to navigate the electronic MAP.
  • A dashboard display of social, economic and environmental headline indicators on the MAP home page improves the accessibility and visibility of the measures and helps people, at a glance, to assess whether some key aspects of life in Australia are getting better.
  • The Environment domain has been restructured towards a presentation that is more consistent with other major environmental reports, notably the State of the Environment report produced five yearly under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999.
  • A headline indicator, low income rental affordability, has been included for the first time in the Housing dimension.
