Community Indicators for Your Community

Real, lasting community change is built around knowing where you are, where you want to be, and whether your efforts are making a difference. Indicators are a necessary ingredient for sustainable change. And the process of selecting community indicators -- who chooses, how they choose, what they choose -- is as important as the data you select.

The Jacksonville Community Council (JCCI) understands indicators and community change, with more than 25 years of producing the annual Quality of Life Progress Report for Jacksonville and the Northeast Florida region, and two decades of helping other communities develop their own sustainable indicators projects. JCCI consultants give you the information you need to measure progress, identify priorities for action, and assess results.

I'd like to talk with you personally about how we can help. E-mail me at
ben@jcci.org, call (904) 396-3052, or visit CommunityWorks for more information. From San Antonio to Siberia, we're ready and willing to assist.

Community Indicators Consortium Conference

The Community Indicators Consortium held its Fifth International Conference in Jacksonville, Florida, USA, March 7-9, 2007. The conference program and many of the presentations are available here, with more presentations and a write-up of the conference proceedings to follow.

This was an exciting time to catch up with what was happening with the American Community Survey, Key National Indicators Initiative / State of the USA, and the upcoming World Forum of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development. It was also a time to learn from other communities and build/strengthen a network and community of practice among indicator practioners around the globe.

One highlight was the presentation of the CIC Innovation Awards, sponsored by the Urban Markets Initiative of The Brookings Institution. Winners of the award respresented communities that used indicators to measure both need and progress, and then used that data to make substantive improvements in the quality of life of people in their communities. A list of the winning projects is available at www.communityindicators.net -- be sure to check out what these groups are doing.

  15. Oi, achei seu blog pelo google está bem interessante gostei desse post. Gostaria de falar sobre o CresceNet. O CresceNet é um provedor de internet discada que remunera seus usuários pelo tempo conectado. Exatamente isso que você leu, estão pagando para você conectar. O provedor paga 20 centavos por hora de conexão discada com ligação local para mais de 2100 cidades do Brasil. O CresceNet tem um acelerador de conexão, que deixa sua conexão até 10 vezes mais rápida. Quem utiliza banda larga pode lucrar também, basta se cadastrar no CresceNet e quando for dormir conectar por discada, é possível pagar a ADSL só com o dinheiro da discada. Nos horários de minuto único o gasto com telefone é mínimo e a remuneração do CresceNet generosa. Se você quiser linkar o Cresce.Net(www.provedorcrescenet.com) no seu blog eu ficaria agradecido, até mais e sucesso. If is possible add the CresceNet(www.provedorcrescenet.com) in your blogroll, I thank. Good bye friend.
