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.

Indicators Wonk is Love Doctor

So you're an intrepid reporter out to capture the singles scene in a major metropolitan area. Who do you turn to for advice on where to hook up?

Obviously, the first person that comes to mind is the guy who runs the local community indicators report, right?

So congratulations to Kurt Metzger for reinforcing the stereotype of community indicators practioners as sexy hunks of sexiness, gettin' groovy with all that data.

(That's the stereotype, right?)

I have nothing else left to say but this: Check out the article.
