The future of Cape Cod is in your hands.

The data is in.

CCYP is excited to share the initial findings of the Shape the Cape survey data with our community.

In September 2013, CCYP launched an ambitious plan for collecting data and ideas directly from the affected population. Over 5,200 people participated in the data collection phase, which included an electronic survey, phone interviews, and focus groups.

We have made available below an executive summary of the results, as collected and analyzed by the Dukakis Center for Urban and Regional Policy at Northeastern University. The full report will be available mid-July.

What's the problem?

From 2000 to 2010, there was a 26% decline in Barnstable County residents age 25-44. ¹

If current trends continue, Cape Cod communities could experience a vacuum of wealth in culture, spirit and revenue. CCYP, on behalf of its membership and the communities it serves is working to put into action a community-engaged plan to retain and recruit a diverse workforce for our region with the goal to build healthy and vibrant communities and to increase civic engagement for the betterment of the future of Cape Cod.
