Although no longer active, the Alberta Round Table on the Environment and Economy produced a report, Creating Alberta's Sustainable Development Indicators (September 1994) which provides an excellent description of the process of developing indicators. The indicators themselves are published in the Report of the Alberta Round Table on Environment and Economy (May 1993). The Report provides very clear descriptions of the indicators chosen and a goal-indicator matrix that should the interconnections between the different issues of concern in Alberta. The work of this group has been taken over by the Alberta Treasury Department, in Edmonton, Alberta. The Treasury produces an annual report Measuring Up, which includes a number of the indicators developed by the Round Table.
