In order 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 MTC and the Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG), Vital Signs related to transportation, land and people, the economy, the environment, and social equity.
We examine history, similarities and differences within our region, and our 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.
We use data to see where we are succeeding, and where we are falling short. Use the homepage to view a range of topics that you are interested in. Then, customize and explore in depth. Share them via social media or download images.
