Australia’s first national wellbeing framework ‘Measuring what Matters.’

15 August 2023

In a pioneering effort that reflects a progressive and insightful approach to governance and policy-making, the Australian Treasury has released ‘Measuring what Matters,’ Australia’s first national wellbeing framework.

The framework moves past numbers and economic indicators alone to focus on key aspects like health, education, environment, social connections and community resilience. It is a significant step forward in recognising the holistic nature of societal progress and the importance of measuring wellbeing alongside economic indicators.

We hope that the new framework will enable a more informed assessment of policies and allow for a more accurate understanding of their true impact on the lives of Australians.
