Quality of life indicators simply answer the question, “What matters most to the people who live, work and play in the Truckee Meadows?”
What constitutes good community indicators?
- Actionable—collaborative improvement efforts deliver positive results
- Meaningful, valuable and important—serve as early warning system to redouble needed efforts for improvement
- Measurable—reliable and consistent measures are available to track data trends over time
Community indicators generally impact more than one quality of life category. Indicators marked with an asterisk (*) are also a social, physical, environmental or economic determinant of health.
