The Hot Report: A Guide to Measure Community Sustainability
The Sustainable Communities Hot Report uses various data from the U.S. Census Bureau to give community leaders and residents a quick and easy way to determine how well their community is performing on indicators related to transportation, housing, economic development, income, and equity. Users can view charts, tables, and maps showing their community’s trends over time and can compare their community’s performance to peer communities.
