Healthy Built Environment Indicators

The Healthy Built Environment Indicators comprise 33 key questions designed to measure how well a particular locality or even a whole local government area supports the health and wellbeing of its residents and other users.  The questions cover the critical areas of physical activity, social interaction and nutrition.  They are formatted into a table or ‘Matrix’ which includes for each question an explanation of intent and suggested sources of data.  Communities and other users can add other data sources and questions to fit their own circumstance.

The Indicators comprise the Matrix of questions plus an Accompanying Guide which explains the background to their development and how they can be used.
