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.

Thanksgiving, Travel, and Wedding Plans

Updates to this blog will be slow over the next week, as I've got another cross-country road trip planned, a large family gathering for Thanksgiving, and I'm getting married.

That won't mean that I'm not going to pass along any updates from the world of community indicators -- the Strasbourg conference is coming up this week, and I'm hoping some of the attendees will share information about what happens there. Plus I've been pulling together the final bits of data for updates to JCCI's Quality of Life Progress Report and the Race Relations Progress Report, and some of what we've found has been really interesting.

But I've been warned that blogging about data visualization techniques and community statistics while on my honeymoon is strictly forbidden. So the bulk of the updates will have to wait until the second week in December.

See you then!
