Goals & Data

The Farm to Plate Network uses Results-Based Accountability as our shared measurement framework. The RBA framework distinguishes between results for whole populations (i.e., population indicators) and results for particular programs, organizations, or services (i.e., performance measurements).

Each Farm to Plate goal depicts population indicators that show the major trends that should accelerate up or bend down over time if our collective activities are impactful. Below each population indicator, we identify additional measurements and data sources that are relevant to assessing progress toward achieving each goal. Most of these measurements and data sources are referenced in Chapters 3 and 4.

We have summarized population indicators for Farm to Plate's 25 Goals using a "positive trend," "no trend," and "negative trend" system here:
