From the first image on the front page, this report on Washtenaw, MI, makes clear its focus and the role of indicators in community improvement. In the center of the image are three interconnected circles labeled “Social Health,” “Economic Vitality,” and “Environmental Stewardship.” Surrounding those circles is a larger loop made of four labeled arrows that run into each other. “Indicators” pushes into “Community Engagement,” which pushes into “Compact,” in turn pushing into “Action.” The impression is that indicators, while the key first step in adequately addressing an issue, are also things that must be perpetually researched and disseminated.
