Progress By the Numbers is a Capital Region community dashboard tracking key metrics outlined in BRAC's five-year strategic plan, BRING IT!, that are often used to understand the economic vitality of a region.
The dashboard promotes transparency throughout the region, highlighting economic successes and opportunities for improvement.
Review the progress on each of BRAC’s four goals by exploring the pages below. On each goal page, you will find high-level strategic priorities that were identified to achieve that large goal and the metrics of success that were recommended for each priority. Metrics are updated quarterly, as the latest data is released.
Bolster Our Talent Pipeline
The Capital Region has a large student population and alumni base, yet many local graduates move out of the region after college. Business growth will be enhanced if this talent is retained.
Diversify Our Industry Base & Job Opportunities
Diversifying the area’s industry base will help supercharge regional employment growth, creating a broader range of job opportunities to attract and retain talent.
Create a More Inclusive Community
Committing to greater economic inclusion will expand our workforce, propel business growth, and help our area compete.
Enhance Our Regions Livability
A high quality of life is essential to retain and attract talent, and to grow the businesses that seek those workers.
