Measuring progress: Sustainable development indicators 2010
Measuring progress: Sustainable development indicators replaces Sustainable development indicators in your pocket as the annual statistical review of the country's progress.
An extensive range of economic, social and environmental indicators are compiled here to provide a statistical overview of the country’s progress. They cover a wide range of topics of everyday concern such as health, housing, jobs, crime, education, and our environment, all of which may affect whether we can live more sustainably in the future. They include measures of wellbeing, how people rate their lives and how satisfied they are with aspects that may affect them.
The indicators are updated annually and reported here:
- National indicators: A suite of 68 Sustainable development indicators.
- Regional indicators: Regional versions of the National indicators.
- Wellbeing measures: Measures relevant to understanding wellbeing.
- International indicators: Highlight UK’s progress in international context.
- Local indicators (on the National Audit Commission website).
