The Arizona We Want Progress Meters

Inspired by the simple truth that what gets measured gets done, CFA created The Arizona We Want Progress Meters. These dynamic tools are a source of trusted information designed to help measure and report on how our state is doing on the things that matter most to Arizonans.

The set of eight Arizona Progress Meters include 80+ metrics that help communities and leaders make decisions based on trusted and regularly updated data. The Arizona Progress Meters make it possible to assess how Arizona is doing on a state, county, and local basis and to compare outcomes by geography and key demographics where available, including race and ethnicity, educational attainment, and income. With web-based tools including interactive data and downloadable topical profiles, communities and leaders can use trustworthy data to identify priorities and prompt action to create a stronger and brighter future for our state.

CFA is using the findings from the 2020 Gallup Arizona Survey to further develop and ensure the Arizona Progress Meters continue to be a responsive tool for measuring how we are doing relative to the priorities of Arizonans.
