The Albuquerque Progress Report (APR) is issued every two years and shows Albuquerque’s progress toward reaching a set of long-term goals, established with the input of its residents.  Since 1995, residents have convened every two to four years to determine and define Albuquerque’s goals. The goals are categorized into eight areas, and each goal is further clarified through positive statements called desired community conditions. How do we know if we’re reaching our goals? To answer this question, your Mayor and City Councilors have jointly appointed a citizen group called the Indicators Progress Commission (IPC). Our job is to measure how well Albuquerque is progressing toward its goals, by designing and reporting on indicators that tell us how close we are to achieving each desired community condition. The report highlights key indicators of progress. In measuring progress, Albuquerque’s latest data is important, but it’s also helpful to see the community’s trend over time and how Albuquerque compares to regional peer communities and to the nation at large. The IPC has summarized this information—by goal—with a scorecard. Keep Current! An up to date version of this report can be found at
