Featured Project: LIFE Study (2010-2011)
LIFE (Leading Indicators for Excellence) Study 2010-2011 was conducted in Green Bay, Fox Cities and Southern Winnebago county in conjunction with the St. Norbert College Survey Center.

|LIFE at Work||Economy and Employment|
|LIFE at Home||Children and Families (child care, youth, elder care, populations with special needs, rural issues, ethnic issues)|
|LIFE of Self-Sufficiency||Affordable Housing, Nutrition, Basic Needs|
|LIFE of Learning||Education (K-12 and higher education)|
|A Safe LIFE||Personal and Public Safety|
|A Healthy LIFE||Physical and Mental Health|
|LIFE in Natural Environment||Natural Environment (water/air quality, land use issues)|
|LIFE of Arts and Culture||Arts and Cultural Assets and Pursuits|
|LIFE of Recreation and Leisure||Recreation, Leisure, and Sports|
Research includes a survey of community leaders, focus groups with key demographic segments, random sample community member survey, thorough review of relevant secondary data, and expert panel discussion from each category area.
A comprehensive report and executive summary for each community as well as a regional summary including information from all three communities was released in the fall of 2011. To view and download these reports, please visit the Fox River Region LIFE Study website.
