Report Card Methodology and Indicators: Development of the Report Card on Homelessness in Ottawa

Download PDF 

Brief Description: This resource includes the preliminary information gathered prior to development of the First Report Card on Homelessness in Ottawa, 2004, by the Alliance to End Homelessness in Ottawa. Part 1, a Review of the Literature was undertaken by The Centre for Research in Community Services at the University of Ottawa to provide a brief overview of the literature on report card methodology, including the history and current status of report cards, the purposes and processes of developing and formulating report cards, the dissemination and translation of report cards, and suggestions for the Ottawa report card on homelessness in light of the findings uncovered in the literature review. Part ll, Indicators and Canadian Report Cards was undertaken by The Social Planning Council Ottawa to look at the various report cards done in Canada, and first isolate the possible indicators that might be used to assess homelessness in a community and then provide an analysis of those Report Cards to create a picture of the range of possibilities the Alliance might consider in its First Report Card.
