Culture, Recreation, & Toruism are key ingredients to an enjoyable quality of life in all communities. Typically, the benefits of culture, recreation, and tourism are not easily measured, though many aspects of visitor spending and tourism can be tracked.

A full definition of each indicator can be found in the More Information section. The data themselves are available in a spreadsheet via the Download Data tab.
