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 Some of the thinking is outdated, and many of the links may have broken over time.

New Issue of Social Indicators Research Available

Just a quick news flash:

The latest issue of Social Indicators Research has just been released, and you can browse the Table of Contents and abstracts of each article here.

For those unfamiliar with this journal, it's worth taking a good long look. Alex Michalos is the editor, and he's amazingly knowledgeable about what's happening in the field. Not all of the articles are pertinent to community-level indicators work, but it helps you stay on top of what the research is saying about measurements that matter. If you don't currently subscribe, go here for a description of the series, links to articles, and an opportunity to request a free issue.
