This standard provides definitions and methodologies for a set of indicators to identify and measure community well-being, prosperity, and sustainability in rural and small-town contexts. It is intended to facilitate the effective utilization of rural data by promoting the consistent use of common definitions and measurements of key indicators of conditions in communities in five domains: economic, environmental, health, social, and institutional. This standard is applicable to rural and small-town communities, districts, municipalities, and predominantly rural regions. Some indicators measure factors that are outside the control of the community but provide important context for understanding quality of life issues and related influences.
