Kingston Community Indicators

Community indicators provide information about the well-being of a community. They show the progress a community is making towards its vision of becoming a healthy place to live. Indicators are high-level, objective and policy neutral, presenting facts and descriptions rather than explanations. By describing “what”, quality indicators prompt people to question “why”, which can lead to improved analysis, accountability, and policy change.

Why do we need Kingston Community Indicators?

Community indicators:

  • Bring people together to talk about what is important to them in their community.
  • Raise awareness of the strength and weaknesses of the community.
  • Identify key community issues.
  • Spark new community initiatives.
  • Guide municipal government and decision-makers in allocating resources.
