Accurate data is essential to help our community set priorities, track progress, formulate policy, and allocate resources. To help drive change in our area, the Community Foundation has been tracking data and publishing Community Counts since 2008. Data for the Shreveport-Bossier Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) is collected and tracked in six categories – Population, Economics, Human Capital, Health, Social Environment, and Physical Environment. For the Community Foundation, this data guides all that we do.
We encourage all to use Community Counts to start and accelerate community discussions, as a roadmap for social capital investment, or as a call to action for philanthropy and volunteerism.
Dr. Dave Norris, Chief Research and Innovation Officer at Louisiana Tech University, will present this year’s data at a special event on the LSUS campus on October 15 at 4:00 PM. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, attendance will be limited. The presentation will be live streamed on the CFNLA Facebook page for public viewing.
