INDICATORS OF SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT FOR THE UNITED KINGDOM

The report contains a set of preliminary indicators, produced by a Working Group for discussion and consultation, following a commitment published in Sustainable Development: The UK Strategy, 1994. Some 120 indicators are presented in a framework which contains 21 "families" of issues, many are relevant to more than one issue. Each "family" is presented with a brief discussion of the issue to show why it has been selected. The trend of the indicator since 1970 is illustrated graphically where possible. In some cases indicators have been proposed for which no data is available at present, but may be collected in the future. An interpretation of the trends is given with each indicator. Sources, references and details of measurement of the individual indicators are given in an annexe. A bibliography of related work on indicators, in the UK and elsewhere, is also given in another annexe.
