Indicators are objective, population-level measures that can be useful in understanding community trends and assessing the impact of collective community action on longer-term outcomes. Indicators provide broad markers to help assess the impact of your work on longer-term outcomes in your community.
Illustrative examples of Indicators:
Indicators can be graphed on their own to determine changes in the measure over time, or they can be graphed together with Accomplishments to determine if there is a correlation between the level of Accomplishments and changes in the Indicator. Information from the Indicator database can also be exported into Microsoft Excel for further analysis.
Each Indicator includes several fields for specific information about the Indicator. These fields include:
These fields will always be included in the Indicator, and individual projects also have the option of adding five additional fields that are customized to the information they would like to collect.
Your site owner should have already set up Indicators for you. If you don't see any Indicators or need to add a new one, please check with your site owner.
To view Indicators, click on Indicators in the left navigation bar. This will take you to the Indicators listing page.
Users will rarely need to edit Indicators. Indicators that have already been created should have all relevant information already filled in. But if you have checked with your project lead and you do need to change or update any Indicator information, please follow these instructions.
You can select from the follow filters to choose what data you view.
