Web­site shows how coun­ties stack up

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - COMMUNITY -

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.
