Monterey Bay Regional Dashboard

MBEP is dedicated to providing a standard data set to ensure that we're all speaking the same language when it comes to data and measuring our region's well-being. We collaborate with regional and national organizations to aggregate, clean and visualize data for you. 

Our Monterey Bay Regional Dashboard showcases key indicators measured in the context of our regional well-being among the following domains: Education, Economic Vitality, Housing, Health, Infrastructure, Transportation, Public Safety and the Natural Environment. It is an interactive tool that provides state, regional, county and city-level data in order to communicate and track progress on key elements that aligns with MBEP's vision of creating a thriving region for all residents. 

Many of these indicators are interconnected — we can’t solve one problem without addressing drivers of another. Data collected annually through the Dashboard will create an actionable, regional index to analyze successes and address areas for improvement. MBEP and its members and regional partners are working together to catalyze community well-being.
