The Jacksonville, Florida, Experience

Part of the Social Indicators Research Series book series (SINS, volume 28)

In 1985, the Jacksonville Community Council Inc. (JCCI) and the Jacksonville Chamber of Commerce created a unique tool to measure and promote improvement in the quality of life (QOL) in Jacksonville, Florida. The Quality of Life Progress Report, published annually for the last 20 years, has required a series of community decisions about the process of determining, quantifying, and evaluating community well-being. As such, it has provided significant opportunities for community learning about measuring and improving the QOL in a community.
