|Summary: This paper focuses on how two institutions in Greater
Boston, the Boston Foundation and the Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC), have partnered over the past decade, along with the City of Boston, to create a nested system of measurement that can also accommodate complexity. They operate from the sub-neighbourhood level within Boston and neighbouring communities to the Greater Boston region, state, multi-state and, as relevant, national and global levels.
