Publications: The Virginia Report

One of the Council's most important publications is our annual The Virginia Report, which takes a summary look back at the year, highlighting performance trends of note and often including custom materials focusing on a high-priority issue which the Council has examined in some detail.

Our three most recent reports are offered below. To view earlier editions, please go to our Publications Archive.

2016 Virginia Report

The 2016 Virginia Report highlights the wealth of new data Virginia Performs now tracks in Health (mortality and longevity, health risk factors) and Natural Resources (a range of new environmental measures, including for air and water quality). The report also adds a brief chapter explaining the structure and intent of the entire Virginia Performs performance management initiative.

2014 Virginia Report

The 2014 Virginia Report recaps the progress the state has made in homing in on key long-term priorities in workforce, economic innovation, and state government operations -- and the new assessment tools created to track progress in these areas.

One note: Important agency performance information normally in the report has been delayed due to an extended agency planning cycle. An amended edition is expected to be released in January 2015.
