The report helps us assess whether we are making progress against the 7 national wellbeing goals.
The 7 wellbeing goals are:
- a prosperous Wales
- a resilient Wales
- a healthier Wales
- a more equal Wales
- a Wales of cohesive communities
- a Wales of vibrant culture and thriving Welsh language
- a globally responsible Wales
These goals have been put in place to improve the social, economic, environmental, and cultural well-being of Wales. They are contained in law under the Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015.
The report considers progress against the 50 national indicators, which were set by Welsh Ministers in 2016, alongside a range of other relevant data. The national indicator pages include data for all of the national indicators, alongside links to the data sources and, where available, statistical publications where the indicators are analysed in more detail.
This year will be the first time that the Well-being of Wales report will include reporting on the national milestones. National milestones assist in measuring the pace of change needed to achieve the well-being goals. The first wave of national milestones were set in December 2021 and will be reported on in this year’s Well-being of Wales report where data is available.
The data that have been used to measure the national indicators are mostly available on StatsWales. Breakdowns are by geographical area or population group where this has been possible.
