Monitoring Progress

Recommendation

Develop a valid instrument to measure community attitudes and percepts regarding diversity

Track changes annually in the community's response to diversity

Suggested Measures:

  • Crime - hate crimes, victim/criminal demographics
  • Education and workforce readiness - high school graduation rate, employer feedback
  • Jobs and the economy -- employment, eg. recruitment and retention rates, demographics especially in government hiring
  • Neighborhoods - Human Rights complaints, voting records
  • Youth, family and the elderly -- school data (ie. graduation rates, demographic characteristics of exceptional students drop out rates, participation rates of low income and minority youth in extracurricular activities), family services data (elderly, runaways, suicides, etc)
  • Rural and small city vitality -- economic indicators, characteristics of in-migrant population
  • Availability of affordable/workforce housing
  • Civic and other community group demographics. Diversity and equity in government hiring.

The Steering Committee agrees with this recommendation and recommends that the community commit the necessary resources to the Rochester Olmsted Planning Department for implementing it.

21st Century Partnership - Community Strategic Plan for Diversity (Under Re-construction).

Back in May 1999 Olmsted County led the formation of a 21st Century Partnership to research and propose what it would take for Olmsted County to be a leader in the 21st Century. This document attempts to bring back some of that information for re-use.
