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.

What Saving $100M in a Federal Budget Looks Like

We've talked about telling stories with big numbers. We've even talked about using art to project the emotions around big numbers.

Now here's a video that tries to take some really big numbers in the Federal budget and make them relevant.

Any questions?

More visualizations available at 10000 Pennies on YouTube. Note: the presenter has a political viewpoint. That's not the point. The purpose of sharing the video is to show how effective visualizations can convey the message of big numbers in a way that advances the message, whatever that message might be.
