These Waikato Progress Indicators (WPI) measure the Waikato region’s progress by identifying current situation and trends across each of 32 key economic, environmental and social aspects. Together, these provide a ‘dashboard’ picture of the ‘health’ of the Waikato region and the wellbeing and quality of life of its people and communities.

We’ve gathered and summarised information from 2001 to the latest available, with a particular focus on the years since 2006/2007. We can use this now (and add to it as this project develops) to help us to identify which aspects we are doing well in; where we need to improve; and how changes in one aspect are linked with or affected by changes in others. So, are we on track?
