The focus of Statistics New Zealand’s 2009 report Measuring New Zealand’s Progress Using a Sustainable Development Approach: 2008 was to answer the question ‘How is New Zealand progressing towards or away from sustainable development?’.

This brochure presents key findings from that report. It addresses the issue of sustainable development using four main questions, which are answered by the results of 16 key indicators.

Trends in the indicators over the 20 years to 2008 (or over the time period available) illustrate positive or negative changes in relation to sustainable development.

The 16 key indicators illustrated in this brochure were selected as being representative of the indicators used in the report, and because there was adequate data available to assess changes over a reasonable period of time. Readers are likely to have their own views as to which indicators could be selected as key indicators. Accordingly, Statistics NZ welcomes feedback on the indicators currently included. See contact details on the back page.

The full report, Measuring New Zealand’s Progress Using a Sustainable Development Approach: 2008, along with the full set of indicators and principles of sustainable development, can be found here.
