Council on Future of Vermont: "Vermont in Transition" Report Available

Vermont in Transition: A Summary of Social, Economic and Environmental Trends, a breakthrough in its field, was released by The Council on the Future of Vermont and St. Michael’s College Center for Social Science Research. The publication explores crucial changes in fourteen public policy issues in Vermont over the past two decades. It is based on the major topics raised in the Council on the Future of Vermont public forums, as well as the expertise of the St Michael’s research team.

St. Michael’s College researchers worked with state, federal, non-profit and business data analysts to compile all the data and trend-lines available into this book. Data analysts and experts across the state were extensively interviewed and the report identified 160 key trends with over 300 supporting graphs and charts. The report is available in an easy to use electronic format. You can download the entire book at http://futureofvermont.org and the entire appendices. Or you can choose one chapter at a time.
