Indicators are the concepts, experiences, or activities that are being measured, including for each of the targets.

  • Contextual information indicators provides insight into the experiences of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people under each socioeconomic outcome. ( CtG NA, para 82c)
  • Drivers indicators measure those factors that significantly impact the progress made against a socioeconomic target. (CtG NA, para 82c)


Measures are a more detailed expression of an indicator and move us from the concept to a concrete understanding of what that concept means. Measures allow us to create or locate the right data sets to measure the indicator concept.


Targets are specific and measurable goals for each of the outcome areas.


Trajectories show the direction and speed of change needed from today to meet the target in future.
