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.

This is an archive of thoughts I had about indicators and the community indicators movement. Some of the thinking is outdated, and many of the links may have broken over time.

Edward Tufte

I had mentioned Edward Tufte's book The Visual Display of Quantitative Information in this post. I appreciated the heads-up about his website and the fascinating material on it.

The graph of Napoleon marching on Russia is available in poster size here. I'm looking forward to checking out his other books, including Envisioning Information and Visual Explanations. Can anyone review either Beautiful Evidence or his book on PowerPoint for me? The folks at Amazon seem to be of mixed minds on Beautiful Evidence.
