Attendees will receive an updated release of City Vitals, CEOs for Cities’ framework for measuring the success of cities. First released in 2006, City Vitals lays out the rationale for ignoring ubiquitous city rankings and instead focusing on four dimensions: connectedness, innovation, talent and distinctiveness. CityVitals was developed by Portland-based economist Joseph Cortright in partnership with CEOs for Cities.
