COMMUNITY DATA 2.0: A Community-Wide Rebooting

Over the past decade, people and organizations in Sarasota County have been developing a variety of approaches to collect, examine and share community data so that together we can better understand this particular area in Florida where we live and work.
On May 19, 2011 the community convened for Community Data 2.0:  A Community-Wide Rebooting – joining together to draw upon all that has been learned so far, to incorporate the latest methods and technologies, and to start fresh once again, in light of present-day realities.  See links to the left for resources relating to the Community Data 2.0 efforts.

To support the Community Data 2.0 efforts, a 2010 Update of community indicators was created.  This update includes data on a subset of indicators that were part of past Community Report Cards, People Count Reports, and Community Study Reports.  Please double-click on the indicators listed below to access the updated data.
