WHAT IS CK COUNTS?
Having a regular checkup is one way to know how healthy you are. CK Counts is just that; it is a checkup on how Chatham-Kent as a community is doing.
CK Counts is a quality of life assessment tool that reports on population indicators in 10 categories. These 10 categories are • Community Context • Community Belonging • Healthy Population • Leisure and Culture • Learning and Education • Household Finances • Work and Economy • Housing • Environment • Safety
CK Counts is meant to start discussion. As a community, we have the collective ability to impact changes in each of these areas. Important questions need to be asked, such as:
What are these trends telling us?
What is the story behind the data?
Are these the results we want for our community?
What will happen if these trends continue?
Does this reflect the quality of life we want for Chatham-Kent? If not, what can each one of us do to make a difference?
We are currently making the 2016 Snapshots on Quality of Life in Chatham-Kent Infographic AODA - please contact CKCommunityLeadersCabinet@chatham-kent.ca to receive one in the format that works best for you.
