Abstract

Indicator projects have numerous goals and one of the most pressing is providing information to support policy decision-making. Whether it is to encourage policy changes or monitor existing policy, indicators can often be the focus point for starting dialogue around issues and potential solutions. Further, indicator projects can provide a public awareness mechanism, bringing data to the forefront so that reactions and responses by those most impacted can be addressed. This chapter begins with an exploration of the policy support and public awareness dimensions of indicator projects. While there are numerous local, regional and even national indicator projects, there are less at the state level. However, at this level, indicators can often serve as discussion points for addressing policy issues while at the same time broadening awareness of key concerns. An overview of state level projects is provided, including by types and approaches. Begun in 2007, Arizona Indicators has been selected for the case study, examining the process of creating a support system for policy and public awareness.
