The City of Charlotte and Mecklenburg County recently released the new Quality of Life
Study, performed under contract with the University of North Carolina – Charlotte (UNCC) Metropolitan Studies Institute. The Quality of Life Study is a collection of social, crime, physical, economic and environmental conditions that provide a snapshot of the health of our neighborhoods. For the first time, the new study report format features an interactive web 'Dashboard
' with maps and graphs to display data in a user friendly platform. There will be several upcoming community meetings to learn how the new interactive online dashboard can be used to get a snapshot of a neighborhood’s health and to generate a report.
