"GDP and Beyond" Survey

GDP is a crucial indicator for measuring the progress of societies, but it can no longer be the only one.  To complement GDP, new indicators are needed to measure how a broad range of economic, environmental and social variables relevant for setting targets and monitoring progress on the way of sustainable development and a better quality of life for all citizens and territories.


These new indicators  have to be developed also at the regional and possibly local level, to enable policymakers, other stakeholders and the public opinion to assess their situation and progress, compare with other situations, set their targets and evaluate the extent to which policy actions deliver the expected results.
