People are important. All members of our community are empowered to participate in decision-making and to contribute to society. We celebrate diversity and welcome newcomers, while recognising the special role of tangata whenua.
Having a population rich in heritage, cultures and languages provides enormous social, cultural and economic benefits. The arts are important for adding to community strength and identity, and are recognised for enabling communication across a range of different groups within society. Voting is a way that people can participate in decision-making, to be fairly represented and to seek redress for discrimination.
Strong and tolerant community is made up of 12 indicators that were selected to measure progress towards the strong and tolerant community outcome definition (shown above).

As with the social well-being GPI, the the available indicator data that forms part of the stong and tolerant community outcome area was used to calculate individual index values for each indicator for each year over the 2001 to 2010 study period. The graph below shows the average of these individual index values, and represents the strong and tolerant community outcome GPI for the Wellington region from 2001-2010.
The GPI counts crime, pollution, greenhouse gas emissions, natural resource depletion and soil loss, as costs, not gains, to the economy.
