What Others Say About Our Work
Princeton NJ Consolidation Study
The work done by CGR and their lead consultant Joe Stefko was outstanding. We needed someone who would understand the two Princetons and help guide the Commission through a study process that we knew would be challenged in this community known for its challenging citizens and world famous academic environment. CGR was perfect for the task.

Having a foundation of objective data and analysis that’s based on a common data set allows us to work together to make our communities even better. Using our Community Profile we can review our accomplishments and challenges from the previous year, then determine the focus of our efforts for the coming year.

United Way of Seneca County
The abundance of easily accessible, relevant, comparative data on the Mid-Hudson Valley Community Profiles website allows users to explore the region’s many strengths as well as the challenges….we know that we have a growing population and a relatively vibrant economy – both of which are fairly uncommon in Upstate New York. And, the information on the website allows us to more clearly see some of the educational and social challenges that we face, such as the economic and academic disparities that persist among particular groups.
