Community indicators tell the story of our area, helping us to clearly see our strengths and challenges. The 70 indicators on this site each track a critical aspect of our community's health and place us in a context by providing comparative information from other communities. Each measure includes a description of the indicator, a brief analysis of trends, charts displaying trends over time, and tables providing data for our counties and others in our region, plus comparisons to the state and nation. For this project, we’ve selected four comparison counties that are included in each indicator: Onondaga, Ontario, Oswego and Wayne.
From this foundation of objective analysis of a common set of data, we can work together to make our communities even better.
