A long-term program to foster economic development in a region encompassing two states in different countries has reached a point where indicators of progress are required. This article describes the development of a wide range of indicators of different aspects of economic activity and quality of life in the region. Sixty-eight separate indicators are grouped into five categories: NAFTA-related, regional economic integration, leading sectors, quality of life, and sustainable development. The article concludes with a discussion of challenges faced in tracking economic development progress in a binational context.
