CityStats measures the quality of life in East Baton Rouge Parish, using data and surveys to tell us where we are headed, how far we've come and where we need to go.

CItyStats is a project of the Baton Rouge Area Foundation. It was begun nearly a decade ago with a collective vision for what EBR should become in coming years. The indicators were chosen to measure progress against those original visions. The Foundation publishes a CityStats report each year. This website allows for an extension of the project, letting us post data when it's released and share ideas and reports that can improve how we live in the parish.
