To make sure we are all working towards the same vision, the Act puts in place seven well-being goals.
If we are to collectively achieve these well-being goals we need a way of measuring progress so that we can all see if, for Wales as a whole, things are getting better. That is why the Act places a legal requirement on the Welsh Ministers to set national indicators.
These indicators must “be applied for the purpose of measuring progress towards the achievement of the well-being goals”. They can be expressed as a value or characteristic that can be measured quantitatively (e.g. a number) or qualitatively (e.g. the quality of something) against the well-being goals. They may also be measureable in relation to Wales or any part of Wales.
Whilst the indicators are set by Welsh Ministers they reflect the whole of Wales and will enable us to understand the contribution made by all.
The Act enables Ministers to review and amend the national indicators so that they stay up to date and relevant. At the start of each financial year Ministers must publish an annual progress report setting out the progress made over the last year.
The national indicators
This is a list of the indicators that was laid before the National Assembly for Wales as required under section 10 of the Well-being of Future Generations Act (Wales) 2015.
The technical information
This is supplementary information providing a detailed description of how the national indicators will be measured and from which data source. The technical document was updated in November 2016.
