A deeper dive
The Score by State section of the tool allows users to get a deeper understanding of specific state and territory scores for a given year (2015 - 2021). The highest and lowest scores are elaborated on with dynamic text driven by content taken from the ASPI report methodology.
For instance, in 2021 Victoria rated highest for Water & Sanitation with a score of 97.10, and lowest for Inclusiveness with a score of 35.15. If a user wants to understand what is driving the low Inclusiveness score they can now interact with the ‘tooltip’ icon and find that the indicators that define this dimension are:
- Gender pay gaps
- Gender employment underutilisation
- Proportion of people who volunteer
- Satisfaction with connection to community
These scores represent an aggregation of data points from other research which is then normalised for comparability - Gender pay gaps (as an example) use data from the Australian Bureau of Statistic’s Average Weekly Earnings reports.
