Each year SSMC features a Key Indicator which provides an in-depth look at a current issue that is critical to the long-term sustainability of San Mateo County. Key Indicators are chosen from more than 40 metrics. Past Key Indicators have included Community Health, Income Inequality, Transportation and Food Systems. For the last three years, our Key Indicator has been related to Climate Change, one of the most pressing issues of our time.
