The Lackawanna and Luzerne Counties Indicators Report tracks data and trends that are critical to the region’s future. The project measures the region’s progress over time on key economic, education, public safety, health and human services, environment, and infrastructure measures portraying the quality of life in our region. The Indicators have been produced annually by The Institute since 2006.

The report brings together in a single document a wealth of social, environment, and economic data that contributes to building civic agendas by providing a common information base for policy makers, non-profit leaders, and civic entrepreneurs. This thought provoking document sets a solid baseline as to where the region has been, where we are, and where we are going. The most important outcome should be the resulting dialogue that stimulates specific action in moving this region forward, in a thoughtful way and drives future priorities to improve conditions needing special attention.
