Data Drives Our Decisions – Measuring Results Consistently

Wilson Forward focuses on current community conditions and the appropriate opportunities that will lead to improvements in Wilson County.  Wilson Forward is responsible for accumulating and reporting the combined work of more than 200 community leaders and members who are focused on moving our community forward.  The objective data found on this site depicts trends over a three-to-four year period of time, specifically as it relates to economy and workforce development, education, health and wellness, and other community data.  

Within each data point, there is a chart which highlights Wilson County and North Carolina, the source from which the data was gathered, and the large-scale community focus areas for each data point.  To set the stage for growth and prosperity, Wilson Forward must use data to describe Wilson’s current state and our future path.
