There are a range of Australian and International Indicator Projects which aim to measure societal and community progress and wellbeing.
In the past decade there has been strong and growing interest in community indicators across governments and communities at all levels. The Australian Community Indicators Network (ACIN) is a group of professionals working together to build a national dialogue and knowledge base across community indicator policy, research and practice. With the support of the ABS, the ACIN has continued to hold national seminar events to share information on community indicator development and applications. In the last year ACIN has begun to develop its own web site where seminar information and recordings will be stored. For more information see the Australian Community Indicators Network webpage.
