Vital Signs

There are many things that make life good in Middle Tennessee. However, building prosperity requires focused intention.

Our region is recognized for our economic vitality and our quality of life. Nashville Region’s Vital Signs is a collaborative process led by the Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce that allows us to identify what’s working and forecast emerging issues and challenges – while we still have time to develop regional solutions.

The Chamber’s Research Center leads the data collection for the project, and the Nashville Area Metropolitan Planning Organization is the Chamber’s lead partner in the effort. The Vital Signs Action Team, which is composed of regional business and community leaders, leads a yearlong process of leadership discussion, priority-setting and action. You can use this web page to learn more about Nashville Region’s Vital Signs, explore the assets and challenges of our region, access the full report, stay up to date with our progress and get engaged in the work.
