GPI Alberta Reports

THE ALBERTA GENUINE PROGRESS INDICATORS (GPI) REPORTS

In 2001, Mark Anielski, Amy Taylor, Sara Wilson, Mary Griffiths and Jeff Wilson (Pembina Institute) completed the most comprehensive sustainability assessment and evaluation of Alberta’s economic, social and environmental progress: The Alberta Genuine Progress Indicator (GPI). These accounts tracked 51 indicators from 1961 to 1999.  Alberta GPI report has become a model for measuring the sustainability of economies.

A report was presented for each indicator, and the information was combined to form one consolidated indicator of well-being for Alberta that was presented both as an index and as a monetary estimate. A series of 28 technical reports were also produced. The technical reports describe the methodology and sources used to develop the indicators.

The following is a library of these 30 reports that we hope will be useful for researchers and those interested in measuring the sustainability of their communities and economies.
