About MAP

WHAT ARE THE LIMITATIONS OF MAP?

MAP does not include indicators for every aspect of progress that may be significant to Australia. This is partly because some areas of progress are inherently subjective and hence difficult to measure reliably. In other cases, there is no consensus about the statistical definitions that best describe the concept we want to measure, or the necessary statistical development hasn't been completed.

Ultimately, MAP is intended to complement the full array of statistics available in Australia, and the ABS hopes many readers will be led to access other publications that can provide more detailed information on the aspects of society, the economy and the environment that particularly interest them.
