  • Release date: 17 March 2016
The Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015 is about improving the social, economic, environmental and cultural well-being of Wales. It puts in place seven well-being goals for Wales.

The Act places a legal requirement on Welsh Ministers to set national indicators for the purpose of measuring progress towards the achievement of the well-being goals.

Whilst the indicators are set by Welsh Ministers they reflect the whole of Wales and will enable the contribution made by all to be understood.

National indicators

This is the list of the indicators that was laid before the National Assembly for Wales as required under section 10 of the Well-being of Future Generations Act (Wales) 2015.
