Since 1998 the Family and Children First Council (FCFC) has been collecting data on the health and well-being of Montgomery County and its residents. The purpose is to track the progress the community is making on improving the conditions for children, families, adults and neighborhoods in Montgomery County.

These Community Indicators are published in the annual FCFC Progress Reports on Community Outcomes Indicators and Strategies. They are grouped under the six Outcomes that the FCFC uses to organize its work. These Outcomes — listed on the left — capture the VISION of the FCFC.

Montgomery County is a place where families, children and adults live in safe, supportive neighborhoods, care for and respect one another, value each other, and succeed in school, the workplace and life.

In addition to the Community Indicators there may be some “Other Data” associated with each Outcome. These data elements supplement the Community Indicators and are not included in the annual Reports. Check back often to see what has been added.

By clicking on each of the Outcomes you will see the related Community Indicators and Other Data. Click each item to get further information. Under each Outcome you will also find links to Team Reports — describing the work the Council is doing — and to additional data analyses on a wide range of topics called "Behind the Numbers."
