` Columbia BID Project

The purpose of the Dashboard is to clearly outline our community’s performance in four priority community issue areas, as identified by the BID partners. For each issue area, key indicators of performance are included. Indicators include data for City of Columbia, Boone County, and the State of Missouri (when available). Benchmarks, targets, and progress toward the targets are included for each indicator. When available, the Dashboard includes vital equity indictors of disparities.

Indicators Explained - The dashboard indicators were selected based on two main criteria: (1) how well they measure the categories (e.g., Justice); and (2) the extent to which they are systematically collected, consistently available, and regularly published by reliable sources.
