The set of indicators covered in the project "How is Austria?" by Statistics Austria provides concise and interactive information on the various dimensions of wealth and progress. Indicators of material wealth, quality of life and environmental aspects are supposed to complement the gross domestic product (GDP) and thus contribute to a broader understanding of the development of our society. The selection of the indicators is based on the framework developed by the Sponsorship Group of the European Statistical System (ESS) on the basis of the recommendations of the Stiglitz Commission. The selection of indicators was discussed in a broad communication process with national experts, institutions and ministries. The indicators are available on the Statistics Austria website “How is Austria?”. A panel of experts also provided assessments of selected key indicators to provide simple information on the development of wealth and progress in Austria.
