Fresno: California's year-round playground



Thank you for visiting the Fresno Community Scorecard, an online community resource offering a centralized location to learn about Fresno County. Over 150 data indicators are highlighted, all supported by trusted, reliable sources and continually updated.

From "people" to "sustainable infrastructure," we hope you find the information relevant and useful in your daily work and decision-making.


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.
