Boston Indicators Project


As a Research Associate with the Boston Indicators Project at the Boston Foundation, I co-authored the 2012 Boston Indicators Report, “City of Ideas: Reinventing Boston’s Innovation Economy.” The Boston Indicators Project offers new ways to understand Boston and its neighborhoods in a regional, national and global context. It aims to democratize access to information, foster informed public discourse, track progress on shared civic goals, and report on change in 10 sectors: Civic Vitality, Cultural Life and the Arts, the Economy, Education, the Environment, Health, Housing, Public Safety, Technology, and Transportation.
