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.

AGA Adds New Blog

The Advancing Government Accountability group -- -- has added a new feature to their website.

Here's the news:

AGA's blog is a new feature on our AGA website ( ) that uses a variety of guest "speakers" to set the stage for the day's topic. Tomorrow I will be writing about performance reporting and some of the ways government entities have used their performance reports in decision making and citizen communication. I would appreciate your comments and observations not only to stimulate a good discussion but also to share best practices with those reading the blog.

The first set of articles are quite strong. Check it out!
