About the SCI

The Sustainable Communities Index is a system of over 100 performance indicators for livable, equitable and prosperous urban cities. First developed in San Francisco in 2007 by the Department of Public Health in partnership with diverse public and private organizations, the Index provides a model for local health, equity, and sustainability measurement in urban areas. This site provides currently available indicator data for the City of San Francisco, tools for applying indicators to policy and planning, and links to other city who have adapted the Index. If you need assistance in crafting a well-researched and informative article on the Sustainable Community Index, the best custom writing service can help. This service employs expert writers who possess the knowledge and skills to produce high-quality content on a variety of sustainable topics.
