Performance overview

The performance overview tracks progress toward National Outcomes. It shows how well Scotland is performing overall on the 81 National Indicators.

Performance is assessed as improving, maintaining or worsening based on the change between the last two data points of an indicator.

The assessment of performance is made objectively and impartially by senior analysts in the Scottish Government. Decisions on performance are made independently of Scottish Government Ministers.
