The Boone Indicators Dashboard (BID) is a collaboration effort between BIG, data experts, and the University of Missouri Office of Social and Economic Data Analysis (OSEDA). OSEDA has been contracted to collect the most reliable data sources regarding populations and issues of Boone County residents. The purpose of the BID project is to provide visualized information tools -community indicators- to be easily accessed by diverse community stakeholders who currently require higher data capacity to more effectively inform and align community planning, resource investment, and performance management and monitoring.
BID views this work to be a foundational building block that will establish core capacities for collective impact. Emergent collective impact process evaluations show that every backbone function necessary to drive progress hinges on the partners’ ability to use data to develop a common agenda, inform and scale up strategy alignment, and to leverage sustainable investments.
