A PORTRAIT OF OUR REGION
A Community Indicator Project for Regional Action

The Mid-Hudson Valley regional profile provides a wealth of information at your fingertips to help inform decision-making and planning in order to drive positive community change for the seven-county region as a whole.

This web tool includes 59 separate indicators that provide insight into the trends of our community over time. Together, the collection of community indicators tells the story about where we are as a community and the direction in which we are heading.

In recent years, this project has expanded to cover additional counties (Columbia, Greene, Putnam and Sullivan) and added indicators, including data on drug-related deaths that show the spike in opioid abuse, living wage estimates and the share of our residents who are foreign-born.

MID-HUDSON VALLEY REGIONAL OVERVIEW

 

The Mid-Hudson Valley continues to be a strong region of New York State with below average poverty and above average incomes, along with prosperous economic sectors, natural beauty, historic significance and a wealth of tourist attractions. However, region-wide data obscure the fact that in some areas and populations, poverty and associated hardships are significant. In addition, deaths from drug overdoses have been rising and peaked in 2020.

The COVID pandemic has had profound effects on economic security, education, housing stability and mental health, throughout the nation and in our region. However, much of the available data don’t paint a clear picture. For example, the latest data from the U.S. Census Bureau spans 2016-2020. By including 4 pre-pandemic years, it understates the impact of the pandemic.
