Website shows how counties stack up
KINGSTON >> The Mid-Hudson Valley Community Profiles website has been updated to show how Ulster, Dutchess and Orange counties compare to each other and the rest of New York state.
Now in its fifth year, the website, at www.mhvcommunityprofiles.org, provides an “apples-to-apples” understanding of regional trends and comparative information that had once been difficult to obtain because of variations in how data gets reported, organizers said in a press release.
With input from local health and human service providers, 59 indicators were selected within the following fields to be included on the site: children and youth; community engagement; demographics; economy; education; financial stability; health; housing; and public safety. Features of the site include one regional profile section that includes charts, data tables, and analysis of the threecounty region.
