Community Indicators Consortium. No. 590.

The Community Indicators Consortium (CIC) is a learning network and community of practice for people engaged or interested in the field of community indicators and their application. CIC is organized around the belief that information sharing across areas of interest is a key element in successful work to benefit people and their concerns about their communities. CIC further believes that collaboration and open dialogue across geography and discipline is key to successful democratic decision making and action. CIC also actively fosters collaboration between community indicators users and performance measurement users. Bridging the gap that traditionally exists between these two different approaches to measurement and evaluation provides a way for community groups and governments to learn how to coordinate their efforts to better serve the people who live and work in their communities.

Hartford Public Library hosts a community information website, It is the only public library that is a member of National Neighborhood Indicators Partners, which is a similar organization to CIC.
