Indicator Trends

Why it’s important

Data is a powerful tool but local businesses, agencies, nonprofits and citizens have limited access to relevant, objective and organized data to measure change in the areas that matter most for quality of life and competitiveness. TMT’s community indicator trends are a set of shared measures that track the region’s change on critical economic, environmental and social outcomes. Monitoring these indicators over time tells the story of our community’s wellbeing—whether it’s improving, declining or staying the same.

Community vision

TMT’s indicator trends empower the community to make informed decisions to transform and improve the region. The indicators inform stakeholders and promote discussion to create a shared future vision across a wide-range of social, economic and environmental conditions. This helps align the community’s resources and build collaborations for improvement. Overtime the indicators evaluate the impact of our collective efforts, outcomes and policy consequences.
