Human capital

Human capital is central to community building. Population statistics, job growth, educational data, and health status of community residents, across all age groups, provides information on the investment in human capital. Human capital deteriorates through the inability of a person to meet basic needs, such as access to food, clothing, shelter, and education, as well as failure to achieve expectations in work and productivity. Making sure that education is of high quality, easily accessible, and meets the needs of both society and individuals; that all citizens are physically, mentally, and spiritually healthy; and that all community members have access to health care services for illness prevention and treatment will lead to a sustainable, collective future.
