Thank you for visiting the Fresno Community Scorecard, an online community resource offering a centralized location to learn about Fresno County. Over 150 data indicators are highlighted, all supported by trusted, reliable sources and continually updated.

From “people” to “sustainable infrastructure,” we hope you find the information relevant and useful in your daily work and decision-making.


The Fresno Business Council and Central Valley Community Foundation spearheaded and funded development of Fresno Community Scorecard to provide comprehensive, objective, easily accessible indicators of the state of the community in order to encourage and support efforts to produce a healthy, prosperous and sustainable community. The indicators were chosen and aggregated by a group of cross-sector community stakeholders.


Effective community scorecards:

  • Focus community attention
  • Empower informed decision-making
  • Measure progress
  • Inspire community action

Our work is as much a process as a product. Many of these indicators are produced annually, so future trend analysis will take time.

As you explore this site, the Development Team encourages your feedback to help continue to improve this community resource.To receive a quarterly Fresno Community Scorecard e-newsletter with updates about select indicators and stories of success, subscribe.
