Indicator

An indicator is calculated from one or more data points to summarise something of interest about the subject at hand. Indicators are generally structured so that they can be used as part of assessment, benchmarking or comparison.

There may be multiple ways to calculate an indicator.

For example, the indicator ‘crop yield’ might be defined as “The average number of kilograms of crop harvested per hectare” or “Total volume of a crop harvested per unit land allocated to that crop”.
