Society at a Glance: Asia/Pacific 2011 uses the 25 social indicators presented below. There is obvious value in providing a short summary – hence Society at a Glance: An Overview. In Society at a Glance 2009, a summary was provided through a table that selected two indicators per domain, chosen on the basis of their a priori importance and through consultation with member countries, and assigned "green circle" for performance in the top two deciles, "yellow triangle" for performance in the middle six deciles and "red diamond" for the bottom two deciles.
