The Australian National Development Index (ANDI) is a collaboration of 40 leading community organisations, church groups, businesses and universities who aim to introduce a holistic measure (beyond GDP) of progress – an index that reflects the views of Australians in an ongoing, participatory process. Informed by experts, but defined by Australians, ANDI will tell us in a snapshot, how we are doing as peoples, as communities and as a nation.

ANDI provides an opportunity for people to come together in an ongoing national debate to respond to the question, “What is your vision of progress towards greater wellbeing for Australia?”
