Welcome to MeasureUp, a microsite of resources and tools to help you measure and describe your programs’ impact on families and communities and on factors related to health. MeasureUp provides examples, tools, and resources to help you make your case, without having to become an economist.
You can dip your toe into the topic or dive deep. You can learn about how to map issues in your community or see how other groups are measuring impact and the tools they use. Read stories about communities that have used health metrics in community development work. And if you want to design your own study, you can do that too. If you need to make your case to a funder or policymaker, read about the evidence for a link between health and community.
