In 2012, Vancouver Foundation identified social isolation as a pressing problem. Although the survey and expectations of its impact were small, the survey ignited a big response in the press and among organizations and government.  In 2017, Vancouver Foundation commissioned a 5 year follow up survey and research to explore and quantify the results of our influence in the 5 years since the release of our 2012 survey. Identifying indicators for this research, comparing the 5 year data trends and creating and sharing the results has influenced policy, inspired others to action and resulted in many initiatives dedicated to increase connections and engagement of residents of our region.  Sharing the story of this 5 year research and public engagement journey will highlight the value of indicator research.
