Compass gives everyone in our state – policymakers, business and community leaders, and concerned individuals who live and work here – a common foundation to identify, understand, and act on community issues that affect our communities.
It does this by:
- Providing unbiased, credible information
- Tracking trends and measuring progress on issues that impact our quality of life.
- Identifying disparities by including trend data by race, age, gender and income whenever possible.
- Providing additional resources for addressing issues.
“Like an onion, there are layers of information here, so start peeling and see what turns up. For instance, there is an “Ideas at Work” section that highlights programs that are working.”
