Capital Region Community Dashboard

Welcome to the Community Assessment Online

The United Way of the Capital Region, Harrisburg Regional Chamber, West Shore Chamber of Commerce, The Foundation for Enhancing Communities and Cumberland, Dauphin and Perry counties partnered to conduct a comprehensive assessment of life in our community. “Life in the Capital Region: 2014 Assessment of Our Community” examined health and human service issues in Cumberland, Dauphin and Perry counties through the lens of health, education, income and basic needs – the building blocks for a quality life.

The assessment provided a wealth of information for our community to better understand human service issues, challenges and opportunities. Based on the work of the assessment, this Community Dashboard has been created to serve as a web-based resource for residents in the Capital Region to access data and information on key indicators that impact the lives of us all.
