Vital Signs

To identify and understand the trends affecting our communities, workers and businesses — we first need to gather data on the conditions shaping our region.

A joint initiative of ABAG and the Metropolitan Transportation Commission, Vital Signs is an interactive website that offers data, visual representations of that data and written explanations about important trends in the Bay Area.

Vital Signs examines history, similarities and differences within the Bay Area, and the region's competitiveness with other major metropolitan areas. This data is available to everyone so that we can all make informed decisions.

The backbone of Vital Signs? Its data. Visit to explore.
