University City Indicators

Recognizing the need for a management tool to monitor the overall quality of life in University City, the Division of Facilities & Real Estate Services worked with the Cartographic Modeling Lab to develop a series of meaningful neighborhood indicators. These indicators included some that are familiar (e.g., building permit data), and others that are more unconventional (e.g., school bus ridership data). Presenting data over time allows users of this report to see trends.
