I’ve seen a lot of communities wrestle with the best ways to select and organize metrics, but TeamNeo’s Vibrant Economy Index had me intrigued enough to actually sign up for updates (!).

The design of the home page is clean and interesting, the intention is clear, and the metrics appear to be well crafted to serve a number of stakeholders with community interests beyond business recruitment and retention.
