Launched in November 2011, The Chamber, in partnership with local organizations, unveiled Prosperity Indicators to measure and monitor on an annual basis the level of prosperity we are experiencing in Lancaster County and in what areas we need to improve. The following areas have been identified as the 6-key dimensions of prosperity:

  • Community & Culture
  • Economic Engine
  • Education
  • Health & Safety
  • Physical Environment
  • and Well Being of People

The partners include the County of Lancaster, Lancaster County Community Foundation, Lancaster Newspapers and United Way of Lancaster County.
