An annual report that presents a suite of indicators used to measure our progress.

The booklet is similar to the UK report Measuring Progress: Sustainable Development Indicators published in July 2010. Previous versions of the Welsh booklet presented a comparison with UK indicators; however, DEFRA recently developed a new set of sustainable development indicators which mainly presents data for England. Therefore, comparisons with UK indicators have not been included in the release or the ‘In Your Pocket’ booklet.
