The quality of life in neighborhoods sets the context for everything that happens for how we live, work, play, and learn. The annual release of the Vital Signs report “takes the pulse” of Baltimore neighborhoods and the indicators serve as a shared measurement system for neighborhoods to understand where they stand relative to city benchmarks. This allows communities to track the impact of mutually-reinforcing activities towards the common goal of a better quality of life in every neighborhood.
The indicators and data used in Vital Signs are organized into eight sections, each of which describes an issue or area that is central to the quality of life in Baltimore City. The data within each of the sections provide a picture of the conditions within Baltimore City’s neighborhoods and their progress over time.
