The data

The CHANGE framework is a curated set of statewide data that begins to identify the gaps where help in our community is needed & opportunities where help will do the most good. By working from a common set of data, our community can create shared goals and consistently track the progress of our collective efforts. Under the six essential CHANGE areas (or sectors) below are key issues (or sub-sectors) that affect the ability of people and communities to thrive. Sustainable data points round out the framework by telling the story of what is happening within each key issue.
