New report measures key indicators for state

Arizona Directions 2012 measures areas of strengths and weakness for Arizona in terms of quality of life, sustainability and economic vitality. The 44-page, all-color publication was debuted last week at the State of Our State Conference, a half-day event hosted by Morrison Institute for Public Policy. Using polls, charts and graphics, Arizona Directions 2012 is intended to visually present various snapshots of key metrics — job creation, education, health and infrastructure — for a more complete portrait of Arizona. Everything from airport activity to high-school graduation rates to water use to diabetes and smoking are highlighted in this now-annual report produced by Arizona Indicators, an online data project managed by Morrison Institute.
