Vital Signs Interactive
Welcome to MCPP's Vital Signs Interactive.
The Vital Signs Interactive tools are designed to allow you to access the same publicly available statistics we use for our research to do your own research online. You can select the data you want to see and create your own graphs and ranked listings. Summary reports are also available at the State, District, and School levels.
You can save the graphs or rankings tables you create and use them in your own reports. Or you can e-mail them to someone who might be interested in the results you found.
The easiest way to use these tools may be to return to the homepage and click on one of the samples in the right column. You can then change the years or the category or the districts or schools you wish to compare. Each sample demonstrates a different tool or area of the Vital Signs Interactive database.
In the "Trends, Graphs, Data" area, you can create graphs for multiple schools or districts or the state as a whole. You can choose the timeframe and the districts or schools, allowing you to compare your school or district to others.
In the "Rankings" area, you can create a table that compares several or all districts or schools on as many as four statistics you choose.
If you find a problem on any page on our site, scroll to the bottom of the screen and click on "Report a Problem." You can also use that link to ask us a question about using the Interactive tools.
