About MAP

WHAT PROCESS WAS UNDERTAKEN IN DEVELOPING MAP?

In the design of MAP 2010, we were guided by past and recent ABS consultations. The ABS has a systematic program of consulting users of statistics about statistical frameworks, surveys, products and analyses. Through this program, government agencies, academic researchers, businesses and business councils, community organisations and individual Australians have told the ABS what they think is important that we measure. In addition, the ABS undertook a wide ranging consultation process as part of the development phase for the first edition of MAP.

In developing this most recent edition of MAP, we have been guided by an Expert Reference Group, comprising a range of government, industry and academic members who are highly regarded in the area of statistical measurement. There are also many international initiatives and statistical precedents that have provided ideas and guidance, for example, the OECD Global Project on Measuring the Progress of Societies (see www.wikiprogress.org).
