National Indicators enable us to track progress towards the achievement of our National Outcomes and ultimately the delivery of the Purpose.
Indicators have been chosen to show how we are progressing on the range of Outcomes. Wherever possible we have selected Indicators that come from existing datasets to allow us to understand progress and trends over time.
The 55 National Indicators do not provide comprehensive measurement of every activity undertaken to achieve the Outcomes and Purpose. Instead they are a carefully chosen set which we believe most clearly shows progress towards the achievement of a more successful and prosperous Scotland.
