Coordinating Council of Broward (CCB) produces The Broward Benchmarks
to help establish a basis for assessing the progress of Broward County in
addressing its most urgent issues. The
data collected organizes nearly 300 indicators into the seven distinct
sections that are identified below. There
is a strong focus on indicators that measure outcomes.
collection for the report is a collaborative process, with two major
component parts. Approximately
every two years, The CCB teams with Professional Research Consultants, Inc.
to conduct the Broward County Quality of Life Survey, a telephone survey of
Broward County residents. These
public opinion surveys were conducted in 1997, 1999/2000, 2002, 2004, 2006,
2008, and 2011. The results of each
survey are available in a real time database where cross-tabulations can be
created on the fly. In
addition, reports and slide presentations for the surveys starting with
1999/2000 are available at www.sfrpc.com/ccb/prchome.htm.

Quality of Life Indicators, a more in-depth look at approximately 60 of
the most significant indicators. Spreadsheets
