Programs and Initiatives
CSR's program areas focus on social indicator projects that measure progress in North Dakota. These projects provide everyone in the state - policymakers, business and community leaders, and concerned individuals who live and work here - a common foundation to identify, understand, and act on issues affecting our communities.
North Dakota KIDS COUNT. North Dakota KIDS COUNT is part of a national and state-by-state effort to track the status of children, sponsored by the Annie E. Casey Foundation. North Dakota KIDS COUNT measures the educational, social, economic, and physical well-being of children in North Dakota in order to inform local and state discussions about how to secure better futures for all of North Dakota’s children.

North Dakota Compass. North Dakota Compass is a social indicators project that measures progress in our state, its eight regions, 53 counties, four Native American reservations, and larger cities. Compass tracks trends in topic areas such as aging, children and youth, early childhood, economy, health, housing, and workforce (with more currently being developed). It inspires people to take action to improve our economic vitality and quality of life. For more information, visit http://www.ndcompass.org.
