This tool allows you to dig into that data—down to a specific census tract—and examine issues such as whether people have adequate housing, who is being excluded from opportunity, whether people have access to or are receiving education, and more. We hope this will help communities discuss and isolate their most significant challenges and identify opportunities to address them.

In developing the Social Progress Index for San Jose, many indicators were considered but were not selected due to issues with data quality and availability at the census tract or zip code level. We see this as a living scorecard and looking to update it regularly. We invite you to email us your suggestions for additional indicators that should be included and ask for your help in identifying data sources that meets the criteria. Our aspiration is to have localized indicators and data sources that reflects San Jose's character and community.
