To ask the Scottish Government how it measures changes to inclusive growth over any given time period.
Answered by: Keith Brown 21 May 2018
I direct you to the National Performance Framework (NPF) which can be accessed at the following link: http://www.gov.scot/About/Performance/scotPerforms
The NPF underpins delivery of the Scottish Government’s priorities and monitors the delivery of the Scottish Government’s purpose. It contains several indicators that are important for monitoring progress toward inclusive growth including; reducing the pay gap, reducing the proportion of employees earning less than the Living Wage and reducing the proportion of individuals living in poverty. The NPF is currently under review and once this process is complete a dedicated inclusive growth monitoring framework / indicator dashboard will be developed and aligned to it. This material will be published as part of the Centre for Regional Inclusive Growth.
