The 8-County East Central Michigan Prosperity Region 5 maintains a dashboard that measures progress/changes in nine measurable metrics to monitor movement/dynamics relating to the goals, objectives and strategies within the regional strategy. The metrics were determined by the PR-5 Strategic Management Team (the Collaborative) during the development of the strategy in 2014. The housing market, private business growth and wages are looking better in 2017. Conversely two areas of concern are the significantly lower traffic at MBS airport compared to 2016 and an uptick in the Region’s unemployment rates.
