Indicators are specific measures that show the condition of a particular topic.  For example, an indicator can show the number of physicians available in a county, the trends in unemployment, or percent of population with Veteran status.  Assessment indicators combine tables, maps, charts, dials, and dynamic descriptions to provide a comprehensive view of the data.
