City of Melbourne Liveability and Social Indicators

Indicators help us to assess our municipality's performance, measure progress and compare with other cities. The results also help us monitor our Council Plan and guide policy, planning and management to ensure that Melbourne continues to be a liveable, bold, inspirational and sustainable city. A visual representation of the indicators presented here can be found in our online visualisation. The indicators are from a select list we collect for the following two main activities: 1. The City of Melbourne Social Indicator Survey (CoMSIS) provides insight into the health, wellbeing, participation and connection of residents in our city. This data is collected to directly address some of the Council Plan’s municipal outcome indicators and support our health and wellbeing priorities. Findings of the survey give insight into the perceived quality of life for our residents. 2. The World Council on City Data (WCCD) is a network of cities committed to improving services and quality of life with open city data and standardised urban indicators. The WCCD developed and oversees an international standard for city data: ISO 37120 Sustainable Development of Communities: Indicators for City Services and Quality of Life. The City of Melbourne is a member of this network and annually submits indicators for verification in accordance with this standard.
