AASU releases results of community study

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Armstrong Atlantic State University has released its findings after a study was conducted to identify significant issues of importance to community stakeholders in Chatham County and the City of Savannah.

The study was done on behalf of Chatham County and the United Way. It measured four indicators: education and youth development, health and wellness, economic independence, and regionalism.

They annouced their results Tuesday afternoon. The United Way says the information will help them in the future.

"I think this has really a good chance of improving our community because I think we're going to have a more coordinated funding approach to issues that are important to people in the community and as we also change priorities throughout the upcoming years," said United Way of the Coastal Georgia President Gregg Schroeder.

The education and youth development indicator shows favorable trends, while some health indicators like healthy birth weight shows an unfavorable trend.
