These Community Vital Signs are based on collaborative work done by Social Progress Imperative a global nonprofit supporting cities, regions, and nations to transition to inclusive growth models and the City of San José to develop a tool to help catalyze and facilitate community discussions on how to improve our community.
The Social Progress Index asks universally important questions about the success of society that measures of economic progress cannot alone address. The Index helps answer those questions with verifiable, credible, and contextually relevant indicators. We've integrated a multitude of local, state, and federal data sources using the Social Progress Index methodology to develop a better understanding of our city.
