Imagine Austin Indicators
The Imagine Austin indicators are grouped by their relevance to the 8 Imagine Austin Priority Programs. Some indicators may have overlapping relevance to more than one priority program. All of the indicators are accompanied by a description, a visualization, an analysis of the results, additional context when possible, the methodology, and the data source.
Providing clear and accurate data to the public is not only important for establishing transparency and accountability to the community we serve, but also because the City cannot reach the vision laid out in Imagine Austin alone. We will continue to rely on strong partnerships with Austin’s greatest asset - our people. By sharing the status of these indicators, we encourage Austinites to reflect on their own community and to take a proactive stance for improving them.

About the Imagine Austin Comprehensive Plan
On June 15, 2017, Imagine Austin - the city's comprehensive plan through 2040 - turned five years old. The plan, adopted unanimously by Austin City Council in 2012 and created with input from thousands of Austinites, established a community vision of a city of complete communities where all Austinites have access to the amenities, transportation, services, and opportunities that fulfill their material, social, and economic needs. These communities support all ages, identities, and cultures while preserving our unique community spirit. These places are livable, safe, affordable, and accessible; and they promote healthy lifestyles, community engagement and inclusion.
