These indicator projects demonstrate the power of indicators to drive positive community change. Winning projects use data to analyze, communicate community conditions, and catalyze action for making measurable and sustainable improvements in quality of community life.
Communities can be geographical, but can also be topical or demographic communities of shared interest. Projects can be hosted by non-profit organizations, local government entities, foundations or academic institutions. The community may be large or small, but the impact of the use of indicators must be significant.
