KCStat is a data driven approach to improve city services. You can monitor the progress of our efforts on this site.
KCStat focuses on monitoring the City's progress toward its Five-Year Citywide Business Plan, which is updated annually (most recently in October 2014). The plan is organized around six goal statements adopted by the Mayor and City Council, which encompass the following major categories: Customer Service, Finance and Governance, Infrastructure and Transportation, Neighborhoods and Healthy Communities, Planning, Zoning, and Economic Development, and Public Safety. Each of these goal statements has between six and 11 objectives, which are strategies that department staff are undertaking to address these goals.
Each month, on the first Tuesday from 9-11:30 a.m., the Mayor and City Manager moderate a KCStat meeting on one of the goal areas, during which City staff present data and information that is used to assess progress on the individual objectives and overall goal.
This KCStat Dashboard provides an "at-a-glance" view of these goals and objectives. The objectives for each goal have been grouped into topic areas for ease of presentation. The dashboard has a tile for each topic area. Clicking on a tile tells you the full story for that topic area and the objectives within it. The dashboard is best viewed using the following browsers: Google Chrome, Firefox, Safari, or Internet Explorer 9 or higher.
If you have any questions or comments about the dashboard, please share them with us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or on Twitter at @kcmo #KCSTAT.
