What is Peg?
Peg measures the health of our community year over year – in ways that count. We report on everything from the health of babies born in Winnipeg right through to how many of them graduate 18 years later. We track how much garbage we take to the landfill, how we move around the city and how we choose to spend our time.
It’s through Peg that Winnipeggers can learn how their life, their neighbourhood, and their city is changing. Peg is a starting place for Winnipeg’s citizens, business owners, and policy makers to learn the facts so they can lead change to create a better city.
Peg is a community indicator system, tracking measures called ‘indicators’ that reflect and measure our city’s well-being. The indicators, developed by a wide variety of stakeholders, are grouped into seven theme areas: Built Environment, Basic Needs, Economy, Education & Learning, Health, Natural Environment, and Social Vitality & Governance.
What is Peg’s Purpose?
Peg’s tagline is “Tracking Progress, Inspiring Action.” Peg is a central source for tracking the indicators that matter the most to our city and its well-being. By tracking those indicators, we can celebrate our successes as well as inspire individuals and groups throughout our city to take action where it’s needed most.
Who does Peg Collaborate With?
As a community-based project, Peg collaborates with a number of like-minded initiatives and organizations whose common objective is to share quality, open data and information to communities to inform decision-making and inspire action.
