Community Wealth Dashboard

Community wealth is not an easy thing to quantify; it can’t be expressed in one easily-accessible number.

In the summer of 2022, Local Return Learning Fellow Kiera Walsh, a Brown University junior studying Computer Science and Behavioral Decision Sciences, developed this dashboard to provide a snapshot of community wealth for each city/town in Rhode Island, using a set of indicators based on available local data. It is our hope that, together, these indicators begin to describe — and more importantly, raise questions about — the economic and social resilience of our communities.
