This summary report provides an overview of the results of the Waikato Progress Indicators – Tupuranga Waikato (WPI) monitoring programme. The WPI is a ‘dashboard’ of 32 environmental, social and economic indicators. Together they provide a broad picture of how well our region is doing and the extent to which we are making progress across a wide range of contributing factors.
This 2016 WPI update compares the latest results for each of the WPI indicators with their 2007 baseline results, measuring regional progress over approximately 7-8 years to date. Around half of the WPI indicators also have historical data going back to 2001 or earlier, giving a longer-term view where available. The aim is to inform the Waikato public, planners and decision-makers of genuine progress against key indicators of wellbeing.
The March 2016 data update incorporates a number of WPI indicator changes to harmonise where appropriate with other monitoring programmes (refer Appendix 1). This includes changes that allow better regional and national comparisons around people’s surveyed perceptions of personal safety, health and physical activity. Additional background and technical information about the WPI is available from Waikato Regional Council (e.g. Killerby and Huser 2014).
