Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet

The Assistant Minister for Cities and Digital Transformation, the Hon Angus Taylor MP, launched Australia’s first official cities performance framework at Parliament House, Canberra, on 8 December 2017.

The National Cities Performance Framework will track the progress and performance of our 21 largest cities, plus Western Sydney. The Australian Government’s Smart Cities Plan committed to tracking the progress of Australia’s cities – and the Performance Framework delivers on that commitment. 

The Performance Framework will support all levels of government, industry and the community to better target, monitor and evaluate cities policy. It brings together critical economic, social and environmental data in an easily accessible online dashboard. The Performance Framework includes 46 indicators covering key issues such as the youth unemployment, green space, housing affordability, perceived safety and congestion.
