Central Indiana's Future: Understanding the Region and Identifying Choices, funded by an award of general support from Lilly Endowment, Inc.,(1999-2002)was a research project that sought to increase understanding of the region and to inform decisionmakers about the array of options for improving quality of life for Central Indiana residents. The Center's faculty and staff, with other researchers from several universities, worked to understand how the broad range of investments made by households, governments, businesses, and nonprofit organizations in Central Indiana contribute to quality of life. The geographic scope of the project included 44 counties in an integrated economic region identified by the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis.
