Second Annual Report, Metropolitan Philadelphia Indicators Project
Posted by on December 16, 2005
The Metropolitan Philadelphia Indicators Project announces the completion of the second edition of its annual report, providing numerical indicators to assist communities and community leaders as they work to improve life for the residents of the Philadelphia region. This project is one of very few that seek to address an entire metropolitan area, rather than confining the scope to one city.
The report contains a series of indicators of community well being for more than 350 communities in the Philadelphia metropolitan area, spanning 9 counties in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. It presents summaries of publicly available information and a survey of 1000 households across 14 dimensions of community life; these range from basic demographic and socioeconomic characteristics to such dimensions of community life as education, arts and culture, civic participation, and the environment, as well as a special section on our region?s preparedness for terrorist events and other disasters.

We are grateful for the strong support of the William Penn Foundation and the Office of the Provost at Temple University. Please feel free to visit the project website at http://www.temple.edu/mpip, where a feedback option is available.
