FY21 Data Set and New Interactive Dashboard on San Francisco Government Citywide Performance
San Francisco, CA (December 15, 2021) — Since 2003, the Controller’s Office Performance Program has annually coordinated the collection and reporting of performance results for all City departments to monitor the level and effectiveness of public services provided by the City and County of San Francisco. The information we track is published and shared with City leadership to help deliver services efficiently and support public policy making.
The Controller’s Office is pleased to announce that as of today, the City’s FY21 performance data is available to everyone through DataSF — San Francisco’s open data portal — in easy-to-use interactive dashboards.
View the press release.
In previous years, the Controller’s Office published annual reports summarizing performance metrics and their results. These reports are available on the Controller’s Office website. Our new interactive dashboards came about because we heard from readers that they wanted to connect directly with the data to understand it better or use it in their own reporting. With this new data set and dashboards, any user can view, download, or query performance data for over 800 metrics from departments across the City. For example, looking at the San Francisco Public Library, users can toggle through different strategic goals — like providing access to innovative information services — and then view the specific measures associated with those goals over different time periods.
The data users can click through covers four fiscal years beginning July 1, 2017 and ending June 30, 2021. Most City departments also provide estimates or targets for two fiscal years into the future beginning July 1, 2021 and ending June 30, 2023. Most results are updated twice each year. Results for July–December 2021 will be added in the spring of 2022, and results for the full fiscal year (i.e., July 2021 through June 2022) will be published in the fall of 2022.
