Other Indicator Projects

Joint Venture Silicon Valley first produced the nationally recognized indicator project, the Silicon Valley Index, starting in 1995. Released every February, we measure the strength of our economy and the health of our community—highlighting challenges and providing an analytical foundation for decision making. Many other regions have followed suit and publish these useful tools. 

California Center for Regional Leadership: The California Regional Progress Report (June 2007) is the first comprehensive statewide indicators report built from the regions up, reflecting the diversity of the State's regions but also shared issues of statewide significance critical for the sustainability of the State's quality of life, prosperity and access to shared opportunity.
