Gaston County Indicators: Statistics to Support Your Cause

A new data resource about Gaston County is available through online, interactive dashboards—The Regional Indicator Website. Trends on the county’s demographics, economy, education, health and quality of life are tracked and compared to peer counties as well as state and national figures. 

This program represents a continuing partnership coordinated by Gaston Together and other local Gaston County groups with UNC Charlotte’s Urban Institute. Support from the Community Foundation of Gaston County has allowed for the interactive data tool to be made public on the web.

In 2013, the Community Foundation of Gaston County provided the financial support to make the data on the site available to the general public. Now, anyone can access information for planning purposes, grant writing and marketing. The site also creates a common base of knowledge to identify strengths and weaknesses, community needs and successes. The goal is to provide the greater community with the data and evidence needed to achieve better outcomes for its citizens.
