  • Description

The Cascadia Scorecard is a regional gauge of progress that tracks seven key trends shaping the Northwest. This year's Scorecard spotlights an emerging body of research indicating that car-centered sprawl contributes to the region's leading health risks, including a high car-crash fatality rate and a high obesity rate. And residents of neighborhoods that encourage foot traffic are healthier--and safer as well.
