The purpose of the Community Indicator Dashboard is to provide the Yolo County Board of Supervisors and the public with indicators that reflect the well-being of the Yolo County community. It is envisioned that the Community Indicator Dashboard will be an informative resource for the public as well as a useful tool for the Board during strategic planning to identify areas in the community in need of attention and stakeholder collaboration.
The dashboard has been organized into seven categories: Demographics, Economy, Education, Environment, Health, Housing, and Safety. Within each category are specific measures that present data pertaining to the category. This data has been gathered from the United States Census Bureau, county and state reports, and various non-profits. Each measure will be updated as new data is made available from the corresponding sources.
