Abstract

Over the last three decades, a number of frameworks have been developed to promote and measure well-being, quality of life, human development and sustainable development. Some frameworks use a conceptual approach while others employ a consultative approach, and different initiatives to measure progress will require different frameworks. The aim of this paper is to present a proposed framework for measuring the progress of societies, and to compare it with other progress frameworks that are currently in use around the world. The framework does not aim to be definitive, but rather to suggest a common starting point that the authors believe is broad-based and flexible enough to be applied in many situations around the world. It is also the intention that the framework could be used to identify gaps in existing statistical standards and to guide work to fill these gaps. Pendant les trois dernières décennies, un certain nombre de cadres ont été développés afin de promouvoir et mesurer le bien-être, la qualité de la vie, le développement humain et le développement durable. Quelques cadres se servent d’une approche conceptuelle tandis que d'autres emploient une approche consultative. Des initiatives différentes pour mesurer le progrès exigeront des cadres différents. Ce papier a pour objectif de présenter une proposition de cadre pour mesurer le progrès de sociétés et de le comparer avec d'autres cadres de progrès qui sont utilisés en ce moment à travers le monde. Le cadre n'aspire pas à être définitif, mais suggère plutôt un point de départ commun que les auteurs croient universel et assez flexible pour être appliqué dans un grand nombre de situations à travers le monde. L'intention est également que ce cadre puisse être utilisé pour identifier des lacunes dans les normes statistiques existantes et guider le travail afin de combler ces lacunes.
