Each of the 11 National Outcomes has a set of indicators that underpin them, and can help us understand if we are making progress.
As of 06 February 2024, the indicators on the NPF website are assessed as:
23 indicators show performance improving.
28 indicators show performance maintaining.
11 indicators show performance worsening.
19 indicators where no performance is able to be calculated.
Indicators where no performance is able to be calculated
- As of 06 February 2024, we are unable to calculate a performance arrow for 19 of the 81 National indicators.
- For 12 of the indicators, this is due to changes in data collection methodology during COVID-19 which is only now becoming apparent in the NPF 2020 and 2021 data. These changes in methodology mean that the affected data is not comparable to previous years, so whilst we have published the data for these years, we cannot calculate a performance assessment of year-on-year comparisons as we would normally do.
- This change in data collection means that the current break in the time series will remain for the affected indicators.
- We are looking ahead to reporting performance again as soon as possible, likely via any updates with data from 2022 onwards when data collections returned to original formats and data will once again be comparable with the original time series.
- The data that was collected during the changes in methodology will remain in a separate reporting area on the NPF website to ensure transparency and clarity for users, with information to help understand the time series and how to use this data appropriately.
