The Progress in Australian Regions–Yearbook is a statistical resource that measures progress in a region against social, economic, environmental and governance indicators. The Yearbook brings together information about Australia's regions from a range of different sources and presents that data in a consistent format over time.

This fifth edition updates information from previous editions of the Yearbook. It incorporates updated data where possible, and also presents previously published census data as newly released 2016 ASGS Remoteness Area geographies.

Excel files with additional geographic boundaries have also been provided, where data is available at that scale (Local Government Areas, Statistical Urban Areas, Statistical Areas Level 2, Statistical Areas Level 3). These are additional to the data in the published Yearbook.

Note that data for areas with very small populations should be used with caution, as small numbers can be significantly impacted by random adjustment.

The full machine-readable dataset of the Progress in Australian Regions–Yearbook can be found at data.gov.au/data/dataset/progress-australian-regions. Where possible, component data used to calculate indicators has been included.
