Indicators removed

Community Wellbeing Determinant: Environmental

Monitor Area Indicators removed Rationale for removal
Biodiversity Number of indivenous plantings This indicator was removed as it is more of a Key Performance Indicator (KPI) rather than an outcome measure and plantings were for council land only, not city-wide.
Coast and Marine

Condition of coastal environments in the city

This was a perception question in the Community Wellbeing Monitor Survey 2013 and was removed in 2016 as it aligns better with the Community Perceptions survey.
Climate Change and energy Awareness of and preparedness for hazards Low response rate in the 2013 wellbeing monitor survey (below statistical validity point).
Supplementary data: Number of solar installations Officer is now collecting and reporting this data through the Quarter. Not part of original baseline.
Land Use Number of infill lots These two indicators are now considered redundant as they were originally developed 8 years ago to align with strategic focus on increasing infill development. This is now part of mainstream policy.
Ratio of the number of lots created in infill to greenfield
Open Space Rating of open space This indicator is more of a KPI and is already question in the Community Perceptions survey (data duplication).

 

Community Wellbeing Determinant: Economic development

Monitor Area Indicators removed Rationale for removal
Education Supplementary data: Noarlunga TAFE enrolments

This data was used to distinguish between enrolments at O’Halloran Hill TAFE and Noarlunga TAFE. O’Halloran Hill TAFE has now closed and Noarlunga is the only TAFE in the region.

Number of city-wide VET enrolments now the relevant indicator.

Tourism Wine grape production Trending information not used. Manager Economic Growth and Investment determined that the data will be collected if needed.
Growth Business by turnover range Data contained in REMPLAN online statistics for 2012 onwards.

 

Community Wellbeing Determinant: Social development

Monitor Area Indicators removed Rationale for removal
Arts Number of people employed in arts and cultural studies For both of these indicators there were data quality issues and were not relevant to strategic objectives.
Number of VET students enrolled in creative arts course
Lifelong community-based learning Number of people participating in lifelong community-based learning This indicator was identified as a KPI – the Council is the largest provider of lifelong learning opportunities through libraries and community centres.
Service accessibility Accessibility of community services This was assessed through the Community Wellbeing Monitor Survey and had low survey responses. Respondents were confused about the difference between what constitutes a health service and a community service. Focus is on health services.
Accessibility of public transport This was assessed through the Community Wellbeing Monitor Survey 2013 and had low survey responses (below statistical validity point). This indicator has been updated to public transport patronage instead.
Accessibility of mental health services There was ambiguity associated with this indicator. An increase or decrease could be the results of increased awareness or available treatment. It would be more important to understand people’s access to mental health services, so this is now reported under the Social determinant – Accessibility of health services.
Internet accessibility This is Census data and the trend of this data is now captured as part of our REMPLAN statistics product.

 

Community Wellbeing Determinant: Health

Monitor Area Indicators removed Rationale for removal
Addictive behaviours Number of gaming machines

Trend information no longer utilised.

Communicable diseases Supplementary data: number of immunisations provided by council This was identified as a KPI and data duplication as it is reported in the Quarter. City-wide child immunisation rates more relevant data.
Food security Participation in food-related community programs This was identified as a KPI and had a low response rate in the Community Wellbeing Monitor Survey 2013 (below statistical validity point).
