Australia Social Pulse at the NGO Research Forum on 8 May 2019
This presentation shares the broad concept of Australia’s Social Pulse as well as interesting and up-to-date findings around employment and education sourced from the Australia’s Social Pulse report.
Australia’s social purpose sector lacks a cohesive, consistent and reliable source that tracks our social progress. Without this, we cannot determine whether the sector is succeeding in its goal to improve social outcomes, nor can we evaluate whether our financial investments in social areas are achieving their aim of addressing complex social problems and strengthening society.
Australia’s Social Pulse aims to respond to these gaps by providing rigorous measurement of the nation’s social progress.
Building on existing Australian social statistics, measures changes over time in key social indicators across a range of domains.
It investigates associations between outcomes and community, and individual characteristics. It indicates how particular population groups fare relative to the average, to provide an in-depth understanding of the nation's social progress.
The NGO Research Forum is hosted by the Glebe CDP project (through the University of Sydney Social Policy Research Network) and proudly supported by NCOSS.
