Community Profiles

UVM's Center for Rural Studies prepares Community Profiles for us to share with our Visiting Resourse Team members in advance of our Community Visit processes. These profiles, compiled from US Census Data and other data sources, include demographic and economic trends about a community and its residents in a number of indicator areas such as civics, population, demographics, income, poverty, economy, jobs and labor force, education, housing, and transportation.
