The Regional Indicators Project is a way to measure progress on economic and social goals related to our region’s priorities. The indicators assist community leaders, elected officials, and funders in making informed, strategic decisions to drive change. The data quantifies the current state of our region and allows us to compare ourselves to similar communities and measure progress over time.
Key data partners are essential to the Regional Indicators Project. We are pleased to work with the Richmond Regional Planning District Commission and VCU’s Center for Urban and Regional Analysis to ensure ongoing and unbiased research, as well as to select indicators that tell the most meaningful story of our region.
The RVA Snapshot: A Shared Vision for Our Region is a printed annual report that highlights selected indicators in each priority area. The 2017 RVA Snapshot updates the indicators released in the 2016 RVA Snapshot.
