Australia's success in the 21st Century economy depends on our cities, suburbs and regional centres.
The Australian Government's Smart Cities Plan is committed to creating the foundations for success across all cities and regional centres.
Delivering on this commitment starts with common goals, agreed across governments, and an ability to measure their delivery over time.
The National Cities Performance Framework supports this approach, measuring the performance of Australia's largest cities.
The Performance Framework will be the first of its kind in Australia, bringing together critical data in an easily accessible online format.
In one location, you will be able to track the performance of cities across key measures: jobs and skills; infrastructure and investment; liveability and sustainability; innovation and digital opportunities; governance, planning and regulation; and housing.
The Performance Framework will support all governments to better target, monitor and evaluate cities policy. It will be key to the Government's commitment to continuous improvement through City Deals.
