Idescat has updated the Social Welfare and Progress Indicators (INDBPS). It provides the data for 2018 for 24 indicators corresponding to the areas of Living Conditions and Work, Health, Education, Dwellings, Security and Transport and Leisure and Culture.
These indicators, made up of a total of 52, were published for the first time in September 2017 at the instigation of the Directorates-General of Budgets and Economic Analysis of the Ministry of the Vice-presidency and of the Economy and Finance and by Idescat, in accordance with Resolution 17/XI of the Parliament of Catalonia.
The production of the Social Welfare and Progress Indicators also responds to the widely expressed social and political concerns regarding the limitations of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) as the sole indicator for measuring welfare and social progress.
