Monitoring Program Reports

Reports from our monitoring programs, including the Urban Village Indicators Report and the Equitable Development Monitoring Program (EDMP), and growth reporting, are now accessible in one place.

Equitable Development Monitoring Program (NEW): An ongoing source of data and analysis to inform work to reduce race-based disparities, advance equity, and combat displacement.

The EDMP also includes information on Neighborhood Change so that the indicators can be viewed alongside historical context and recent shifts in racial and ethnic demographics in and around Seattle.
