Project Description

Erie Vital Signs tracks indicators that reflect and measure the United State's well-being in eight topic areas: Brain Gain, Community & Civic Engagement, Cultural Vitality, Environment, Health, The Economy, Pre K-12 Education, and Regionalism. The goal of this project is to inform, inspire, and even provoke. This is achieved by presenting sound, unbiased information, with clarity and transparency, on the issues our community identifies as important to our quality of life. Individuals, groups, and organizations in all sectors can use the information to learn more about current community conditions, increase knowledge, to increase their knowledge, to inform decisions, to promote accountability, and to guide action to achieve short- and long-term progress. As future projects incorporate this information, and as project outcomes are designed around indicators and reported here, the results can be monitored and lessons can be learned. Erie Vital Signs is a collaboration of The Erie Community Foundation, The Nonprofit Partnership, United Way of Erie County, and Erie Regional Chamber & Growth Partnership, and Erie Together. Members of these agencies comprise a Steering Committee that provides project oversight to help guide their community’s future for the next decade.
