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.

Quote of the Day

From Florida Trend:

"People love numbers, even when they are meaningless."
-- Hugh Willoughby, of Florida International University and a former forecaster at NOAA, referring to hurricane predictions.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration predicts the 2008 hurricane season will be about average in terms of the number and strength of named storms. But it is down playing its prediction of the actual numbers.
