Talking Points
  • A matrix approach
  • Tends to show linkages

Categorizing indicators according to the goals towards which they are measuring progress is very helpful in showing linkages. The matrix above is part of a larger matrix developed by the Roundtable of the Province of Alberta, Canada. The matrix shows graphically how the different indicators measure progress toward multiple goals. This framework makes it easier to see the links among the different facets of the community.
