Vantage Point Community Indicators Project: Data Profiles for Counties, Cities, and Regions

The Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco launched Vantage Point in 2010 to gather viewpoints from community stakeholders across the 12th District around local issues and trends affecting low- and moderate-income (LMI) communities. We conduct the project with the assumption that those working on the ground in these areas have the best understanding of local context, challenges, and promising practices. Their input helps us to monitor changes and trends over time in our district and compare and contrast the many diverse counties, cities, and towns of the western United States.

As of 2014, we have incorporated a new approach to this project that combines our community stakeholder survey with the customized data reports posted on our community development data web page for each of 91 individual counties, 34 major cities, and 20 regions (including smaller counties), covering the reach of the Federal Reserve’s 12th District. These profiles include a range of social, demographic, economic, workforce, housing, and health indicators at the county, city, or ZIP code level.

The data profiles for each county and city included in the survey are now available to the public here on our website, with combined quantitative and qualitative data profiles to follow after the next Vantage Point survey is conducted in the summer of 2015. FRBSF community partners and members of the public are welcome to use the data and graphs presented here for their data needs. Please be sure to cite the original data source noted on each graph as well as the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco if you use these graphs in other contexts.
