Neighborhood Indicators

Neighborhood indicators provide measurable changes to better track conditions occurring at the local level. Information may be used to evaluate the effectiveness of programs or activities aimed at improving trends, and assist in identifying where additional attention or resources might be most effectively allocated.

Overland Park's neighborhood indicators currently track trends of: 

  • median appraised value of homes,
  • absentee ownership of homes,
  • property maintenance violations,
  • part one crime (major crimes),
  • measure of need for each of our Neighborhood Conservation Program area, and
  • low/moderate income areas (CDBG eligible)

Comparisons are made to trends at higher levels of geography such as citywide, all neighborhoods north of I-435, and all conservation neighborhoods.

Neighborhood Support Data

The support data listed below will also be tracked to help provide a more complete picture of the state of the city's neighborhoods. New data may be added to the list in the future as neighborhood issues change or new data sources become available.
