City of Winnipeg Quality of Life Indicators

By IISD on March 1, 2002
Plan Winnipeg, the long-term strategic plan for the city of Winnipeg, identifies high quality of life as the key element in the community's vision for the future. To make this vision a reality, it is essential to identify and monitor key measurable elements of the vision.

Establishing a measurement system for quality of life requires a process to identify the key quality of life issues and indicators, to collect and organize data, and to publicize the information. The key questions to be answered in this process are the following:

  • What is a quality of life framework?
  • What is a quality of life indicator?
  • What is a quality of life index?
  • How is an indicator developed?
  • How are indicators reported?
