ABOUT THE FRESNO COMMUNITY SCORECARD
The Fresno Community Scorecard is presented by the Fresno Business Council and ValleyPBS, a partnership formed to raise awareness about important leading indicators for building a healthy, prosperous and sustainable community. The indicators were chosen and aggregated by a group of cross-sector community stakeholders.
With greater knowledge and understanding,
the Fresno Community Scorecard can:
- Focus community attention
- Empower informed decision-making
- Measure progress
- Inspire community action
Our work is as much a process as a product. Many of these indicators are produced annually, so future trend analysis will take
time. As you explore this site, the Development Team encourages your feedback to help continue to improve this community resource.To receive a quarterly Fresno Community Scorecard e-newsletter with updates about select indicators and stories of success, subscribe.

It is important to monitor this indicator because in order for law enforcement to protect their local communities effectively, there must be enough of them. more information
