About Us

For fifteen years, The Boston Indicators Project has been a primary data resource for the Greater Boston community, providing a rich online portal of data exploring ten civic sectors. We work to measure progress towards our shared goals of equity, prosperity and justice, while fostering informed public discourse and democratizing access to high quality data and information.
