'Community Indicator Dashboard’ launched by Yolo County [Woodland Democrat]

 

From Gail: Interesting new dashboard to check out.  I wonder if we can include some of the kidsdata data on this dashboard?

People curious about the “status” of the economy, education, or housing in the Yolo County now have a means of learning the metrics.

They can now get real data on these topics and more on a just-launched “Community Indicator Dashboard,” according to Public Information Officer Beth Gabor.

Developed through combining data from a variety of federal, state, county and non-profit sources, the purpose of the dashboard is to provide the public with a quick snapshot of key indicators to demonstrate the overall well-being of the Yolo County, Gabor reported.

The development of the dashboard is part of the effort in Yolo County to establish a performance management system throughout the organization. Through such a system the county seeks to better utilize available data to drive decisions and improve program outcomes. For this reason performance measurement and dashboard development are listed as organizational priorities in Yolo County’s 2016-2019 Strategic Plan.

“The Community Indicator Dashboard gives us all a lens to track our key information. It allows for greater transparency and accountability regarding the state of our community and the services provided,” said District 2 County Supervisor Don Saylor. “This dashboard is a key step in the County’s overall goal to improve services through data-driven decisions.”
