- Figure 8.1 Two approaches to deriving national indicators. In Approach 1, compatible data from each reporting unit is combined and then the indicator is assessed against a national objective. In Approach 2, possibly different data are assessed within each reporting unit and the national indicator provides a summary of the results.
