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.

Graduation Rates Mapping Tool

A friend sent along this mapping tool for high school graduation rates in the United States. See http://mapsg.edweek.org/edweekv2/default.jsp to look at graduation rates by state or zoom in for district comparisons.

Beyond just seeing the color-coded map, you can hover your mouse over a district and get additional details, or click for a full district report. Quick, easy, informative. See http://mapsg.edweek.org/edweekv2/help.htm#district for more information about how to use the tool.

Keep sending along these data tools!
