“Vermont in Transition: Social, Economic and Environmental Trends” released today

first_imgAs Vermont is poised to make major financial decisions with far reaching policy implications, new research may prove instrumental in shaping the discussions. The Council on the Future of Vermont and St. Michael s College just published Vermont in Transition: Social, Economic and Environmental Trends, a comprehensive study of the major trends that are impacting life in the state. Over 300 graphs are included in this 150 page research book which documents and explains the key transitions that have occurred in Vermont in areas as diverse as education, the economy, agriculture, demography, crime, energy, climate and civic engagement. The study was commissioned by the nonpartisan Vermont Council on Rural Development as a facet of its two-year Council on the Future of Vermont program. This report is important for legislators, reporters, community leaders, advocates, philanthropists, and any citizen who wants to better understand the Green Mountain State. It provides critical data that will help decision makers as they plan ahead, explains CFV Program Manager Sarah Waring. The research, along with polling, public forums and listening sessions are helping to build a comprehensive picture of the aspirations of today s Vermonters and the place they would like our state to be in the future. The Council releases its final findings this spring.To look back at trends over time, The Council on the Future of Vermont (CFV) partnered with the well-respected Saint Michael s College Center for Social Science Research and Drs. Vince Bolduc and Herb Kessel. The project drew upon the work of analysts in federal and state government, other educational institutions, the non-profit sector, and the business community, including sources such as the Vermont Economy newsletter, the Congressional Quarterly, the Vermont Campaign to End Childhood Hunger, and the Vermont Land Trust. This joint writing effort combines the expertise of sociologists, economists, biologists, physicists, and other specialists. This project is unique in many ways, says Dr. Bolduc, who teaches Sociology at St. Michael s College. It is holistic in its broad spectrum of subjects covered; historical in its focus on change over time; quantitative in its reliance on objective data, and it presents each topic in the context of regional or national developments.Dr. Kessel, a professor of Economics, noted The project brings together in a single document well over 300 charts and tables, which provided the basis for us to identify 160 of the most important trends in Vermont. When historians try to understand what life was like in Vermont at the turn of the millennium, we hope that they will turn to our study and the broader one being prepared by the Council on the Future of Vermont.Vermont in Transition is available online for free at www.futureofvermont.org(link is external), or by calling 802-223-6091 to request a hard copy. The Council on the Future of Vermont is a project of the Vermont Council on Rural Development through a special partnership with the Vermont Community Foundation.last_img read more
