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.

If It Matters, Measure It!

I wanted to pass along this blog post from Scott Burns highlighting the importance of government performance measurement and pointing to the CDC's metrics page as a best practice example.

Along the same line, I stumbled across this blog called Measures Matter that is focused on government performance measurement.

Of course, i still rely on the resources at the Public Performance Management Reporting Network and the Association of Government Accountants (AGA) Blog.

What other resources do you find helpful for discussing government performance measures?
