Measures of surrogate variables relevant to sustainable development in small island developing nations are assembled in six tables which are respectively used to profile (1) satisfaction of basic needs, (2) progress towards sustainable development, (3) job security for sustainable development, (4) provision for safe, decent and habitat friendly work, (5) consolidation of sustainable development progress, and (6) business accountability for sustainable development. The content of each table is discussed and occasionally benchmarked against the content of relevant government reports. General speculative opinion drawn from the discussion is used as a basis for general conclusions about policy.
