Report: TR 2017/16
Author: Beat Huser and Paul Killerby
This document summarises latest results from the Waikato Progress Indicators (WPI) – Tupuranga Waikato monitoring programme, updated in May 2017.
The WPI is an online dashboard of 32 environmental, social and economic indicators of a range of societal wellbeings. It provides a valuable tool for monitoring regional progress, including progress towards Waikato Regional Council’s Strategic Direction 2016-2019 goals for a healthy environment, strong economy and vibrant communities.
This update compares the latest available results for each of the WPI indicators with 2006-07 baseline results, enabling regional progress to be assessed over a decade period.
Around half of the WPI indicators also have historical data going back to 2001 or earlier, giving a longer-term view where available.
The aim is to inform the Waikato public, planners and decision-makers of genuine progress against key indicators of wellbeing. The 2017 data refresh incorporates a range of WPI indicator changes and improvements compared to 2016, primarily due to participation in the 2016 Quality of Life Survey.
