Appendix 1: Interim measures

Our vision is an accessible and inclusive South Australia based on fairness and respect.

To map our progress, we will use the interim measures below as we work towards developing an outcomes framework that aligns with the new national disability strategy for beyond 2020. The interim measures include indicators that are contained within existing data sources. We will continue to adapt current sources and develop new indicators in consultation with our stakeholders.
