Arizona Progress Meters

Inspired by the simple truth that what gets measured gets done, CFA created the Arizona 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.


Utilize Data for Action

These web-based tools provide interactive data and downloadable charts for communities and leaders to identify needs and prompt action on Arizonans’ priorities.

As new data are released for the outcomes indicators of each progress meter, CFA provides updates and analysis on progress to goals. Catch up with the latest updates.
