Strengthening Communities with Neighborhood Data

NOVEMBER 12, 2014 - 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM ET

Washington, DC and Online

Efforts to address the problems of distressed urban neighborhoods stretch back to the 1800s, but until relatively recently, data played little role in forming policy solutions. Published by the Urban Institute with support from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, the new book Strengthening Communities with Neighborhood Data documents how government and nonprofit institutions have used information about neighborhood conditions to change the way we think about community and local governance in America.

Erika Poethig, Urban Institute fellow and director of urban policy initiatives, will moderate a discussion with authors G. Thomas Kingsley and Kathryn L.S. Pettit from the Metropolitan Housing and Communities Policy Center at the Urban Institute, and Claudia J. Coulton from the School of Applied Social Science at Case Western Reserve. 

You can attend the event in-person or listen to a live Webcast.
