The target metrics are measures of progress for each goal. Any particular target metric by itself can’t tell the complete story. So, we’ve combined a variety of metrics for each goal to provide a fuller picture of how the region is doing. The #LA2050Listens community conversation series and roundtable sessions with topic experts contributed to the formation of the target metrics and goals.
When selecting target metrics, LA2050 looked at statistical information that: a) contributes to achieving the goal, b) can be reliably sourced, and c) is regularly updated.
