National Indicators

scan front cover NIR 16

The overall aim of the Healthy and Positive Ageing Initiative is to monitor progress in the implementation of the National Positive Ageing Strategy. As part of this, the initiative has developed consensus on the key indicators that are to be used to monitor progress in positive ageing in Ireland.

An initial list of indicators was developed by the HaPAI team,and these were used as the basis for a Preliminary Report published in mid-2015. The HaPAI team completed a national consensus-measurement process in 2015 to narrow this list down to the most relevant and important indicators of positive ageing, using the Delphi technique. The set of 56 key National Positive Ageing Indicators will be reported on and published every two years by the Department of Health.
