Project Description

The only one of its kind in the eight-county region, the ""Counting on Quality of Place"" Indicator Study is a benchmark study published annually by the Center for Houston's Future. The vision of the Center for Houston's Future is to advance the Houston region as one of the top ten global communities in which to live and work. In 2007, the Center produced the region's first Indicator Study focused on quality of place, and in 2009 committed to publish an annual update. In January 2011, the Center published a third Study on water quality, water supply, the health impacts of water, and green buildings. A report on public education in the Houston region is due in February of 2012. The Report is chaired by Rice University's Dr. Steve Klineberg and overseen by a policy level committee composed of business, civic, and sustainability leaders. Subject experts or "Data Groups" contribute to the independent stance of the Study by peer reviewing individual chapters.
