The 2009 Prince George’s County Quality of Life and Community Indicators Study provides data to inform current policy discussions and decision-making. The study serves as a dynamic measurement tool that can support a variety of initiatives concerning the well-being of the people who live, work, play, go to school, or visit the county. This study presents subjective-qualitative and objective-quantitative indicators to monitor trends in economic, social, community, and environmental conditions in the county and the benchmark jurisdictions. It involves tracking indicators, both positive and negative, that reflect the trends in education, health, employment, income, housing, and public safety, among others. It tells where we are, how far we have come, and what critical areas need attention if we are to achieve our vision for the county. For the immediate future, the data will provide critical input to support the ongoing Envision Prince George’s effort.
