The Community Indicators Consortium (CIC) is currently soliciting proposals for the 2022 CIC Symposium – Methods, Metrics, and Measurements for Community Resiliency and Equity for All, which will be held virtually May 4 – 5, 2022. CIC is seeking proposals that describe HOW you, as a data scientist, community indicator practitioner, analyst or community builder, do your work: tools you use to engage, survey, measure, or report; methods to analyze or evaluate; innovative indicators or indices; approaches to factor in equity or resilience. 

Call for Chapters: Community Quality of Life Indicators: Best Cases X

The Community Indicators Consortium is inviting you to submit a chapter for our upcoming book, Community Quality-of-Life Indicators: Best Cases X, to be published by Springer in the Fall of 2022. This volume will contain case studies and research highlighted from the Community Indicators Consortium 2021 Virtual Impact Summit. The volume will contribute to the Springer book series on Community Quality-of-Life Indicators. The first volume in this series was published in 2006.

Indicators Making an Impact

Projects Driving Change in Their Community

The Community Indicators Initiative of Spokane seeks to improve local, private and public decision-making by providing relevant data on an easily navigable website. The data serves as neutral information for all parties involved. The initiative’s goals include to collect and share a broad spectrum of information for individual community members and policy makers, track progress over time, enable analysis of trends, and measure the community’s progress.

Resources That Help You Make an Impact

The Neighborhood Compass is a primary community resource that allows tracking changes in the community with data. The information is regularly updated which allows for a deeper understanding of how Durham’s neighborhoods are changing. To get started, a category or topic can be chosen from the menu at the top, followed by finding an address or neighborhood using the address search tool on the map, and finally making a report by clicking on the ‘Report’ button.
