Putting Data to Work: Data-Driven Approaches to Strengthening Neighborhoods
Abstract: The purpose of this publication is to share examples of the innovative ways in which communities are building data systems to improve knowledge of local demographic trends and then to target their limited resources to most effective use. This compilation of work offers case studies and best practices for municipalities, universities, nonprofits, funders, and other local partners who want to increase their capacity to gather, analyze, disseminate, and use data to inform and support neighborhood stabilization decisions and activities. It provides replicable information on how cities and other jurisdictions are building coalitions to develop a local data infrastructure and how they are using information from these systems to analyze trends and make key investment decisions.
