Supporting reporting on Closing the Gap
The development of the Information Repository1 to support reporting is being undertaken in stages.
The latest update to the Dashboard was on 31 March 2022 and included disaggregations of data for a subset of targets under the socioeconomic outcome areas (with a new year of data for five socioeconomic outcome areas) and refinements to the method for assessing progress against the targets.
A further update to the Dashboard will be available in late June 2022, which will include reporting on a further 20 indicators across the Priority Reform areas and socioeconomic outcome areas.
The release of the second Annual Data Compilation Report is anticipated by end July 2022.
The Closing the Gap Information Repository comes from the National Agreement on Closing the Gap (the Agreement). The purpose of the information repository is to inform reporting on progress in Closing the Gap.
The Information Repository includes a Dashboard and annual data compilation report:
- The Dashboard provides the most up-to-date information available on the targets and indicators in the Agreement. The data will be available in different formats including visual.
- The annual data compilation report provides a point-in-time snapshot of the Dashboard material.
Information about the targets and indicators will be added over time and will include reporting against agreed Priority Reform and socioeconomic outcome targets and indicators
Further supporting material will be added over time to build on existing capability in accessing and interpreting the data reported.
The Information Repository is produced by the Productivity Commission.
- You might like to think of this as an information hub.
