Summary report

Waikato Progress Indicators (WPI) – Tupuranga Waikato  (July 2018)

Waikato progress indicators – Tupuranga Waikato - Summary update July 2018 [PDF, 1.6 MB]

The above 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 2018 WPI update compares the latest results for each of the WPI indicators with their 2007 baseline results, measuring regional progress over approximately 10 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.

Additional background and technical information about the WPI is available from Waikato Regional Council (e.g. Killerby and Huser 2014).
