City Profiles

In order to put data into a context for wise action, Thriving Cities Group has created distinct city profiles for its pilot cities. These profiles are central in that they characterize a given pilot city in relation to the Project’s distinctive “human ecology” framework and research design. In applying the human ecology framework, profilers collected and analyzed both quantitative and qualitative data on each city according to the six fundamental community endowment areas. Additionally, the profile assesses the unique ways in which the community endowments interact with and relate to each other in the context of a particular city.
