Measuring Progress Toward Our Priorities
King County is committed to using data to provide a transparent and accountable record of our performance.
King County Performance 2015
The Executive Priorities Performance Dashboard is a data-driven dashboard intended to help the public understand and evaluate King County’s progress toward each of our four priorities—best-run government, equity and social justice, climate change, and regional mobility—as well as other important King County work.
The data and metrics in this report are a combination of community-level outcome indicators and King County government operational performance measures. This information provides a transparent and accountable record of our performance.
The dashboard has been archived as an electronic report and is organized around the four executive priorities, each of which has several topic areas (represented as a tile) pertaining to the priority.
Scope & Data
The King County Performance Report includes performance measurement data, commentary, and information about the Executive’s four priorities. These details are drawn from departments’ data and strategic plans.
The data presented are generally for the previous five years. Where possible and applicable, target levels, industry standards, or other benchmark data are also included.
The King County Performance Report dashboard will be updated on a regular basis when new data is available, so that it captures the state of the county at any given time.
Where We've Been
The Office of Performance, Strategy and Budget is responsible for County-wide reporting against the King County Strategic Plan.
King County has traditionally produced the Performance Measure reports as companions to the annual county budget. King County AIMs High replaced that report and incorporated new national reporting criteria and guidelines to ensure effective public performance reporting.
In October 2015, King County launched an Executive Priorities Performance Dashboard, using technology that offered greater interactivity with performance information.
The County is currently working on its next Performance Dashboard and plans to produce a report on the King County Strategic Plan in late 2017.
