Based on your feedback the ABS will be releasing Measures of Australia's Progress 2013 to the ABS website on the 14th November 2013. Thank you for your feedback and contribution to the development of this publication.


Measures of Australia's Progress (MAP) helps Australians address the question, 'Is life in Australia getting better?'. To help it do this we're planning on refreshing MAP for its next full scale release in late 2013. The main aspect of this refresh is that MAP will take on board the results of a recent broad ranging public consultation, which asked Australians what aspects of life are important for national progress. Another element of the refresh though is an enhancement of MAP's website.

Because MAP brings together information from so many diverse areas, we want to ensure its website is easy to use so that people can readily make an overall assessment of national progress. We also want to clearly communicate the stories behind the statistics, and allow users to directly access data they are interested in.

Take a look at the mock-ups below and let us know if you like the new layout and functionality.

Mock-up inclusions:

  • A MAP summary dashboard homepage - with an alternate view
  • A MAP summary animation
  • A MAP Health Infographic
  • and MAP's 'Health' theme page

Note: The content in these mock-ups is just dummy and is not intended for use other than to demonstrate the website's functionality enhancements.
