Project Description

The biennial Our Miami Report provides a community snapshot of key quality of life issues shaping Greater Miami’s vitality by examining the data, trends and stories behind them. The 2016 study collected secondary research including more than 70 data points across eight critical issues: arts & culture, civic engagement, economy, education, environment & public space, health & safety, housing & affordability and transportation. The biennial report builds on the 2014 Our Miami Report and the 2012 Our Miami: Soul of the City study, which explored factors that connect people to the place they live. The 2016 report takes the research to a new level in terms of its scope and approach to finding connections across the indicators.

Awards and Recognitions: Place Marketing Forum, Best Practice Award, awarded in 2014 for the 2012 Our Miami Report

Achievements: The initiatives inspired by and resulting from Our Miami have been heralded as innovations with impact including the Public Space Challenge (ourmiami.org/challenge), the Match305 talent retention project, and the Talent Development Network (a partnership of all local institutions of higher education and the business community).

Community Indicators – Performance Measures Integration

Does this project have Community Indicators?: Yes
The 2016 Our Miami Report provides a snapshot of eight vital issue areas shaping Greater Miami’s quality of life: arts & culture, civic engagement, economy, education, environment & public spaces, health & safety, housing & affordability and transportation. By examining the data, trends and stories behind them, the report seeks to create a launch pad that will accelerate community solutions to shape the vibrant community we all want to call home.

Does this project have Performance Measures?: Yes
The Report benchmarks Miami-Dade County against four other regions in the US in order to provide context to our performance. And, we display multiple years of data to provide a historical view which helps determine if we are improving or falling behind in our objectives.

Has this project integrated Community Indicators and Performance Measures?: No
