Performance measurement and reporting has become widespread. The authors provide a status snapshot of regional (n = 20) and nonregional (n = 24) initiatives that have issued at least 1 performance report since 2005. Most regional initiatives around the United States are in the very early stages of acquiring data and devising data collection strategies. The authors recommend that a framework and approach for generating nationally consistent and locally adaptable performance information for communities across the United States should be formulated. This would allow better coordination of promising regional initiatives to improve their impact and reduce operating costs/burden.
