Welcome to the Community Action Partnership’s Data Hub.
This Hub acts as your entry into an online tool with multiple features that allow for the efficient use of data and mapping as part of a larger Community Needs Assessment process. Here, you can measure and visually represent the fundamental drivers of poverty in your community through an array of census data sets, a report generator, and a mapping tool.
The Comprehensive Community Needs Assessment tool allows you to:
- Select state(s) and county(ies) to be included in your report (i.e. Indiana, Porter County; New York, Albany County, Rensselaer County, Schenectady County);
- Select specific data elements (Demographics, Employment, Education, Housing, Income, Nutrition, and Health Care);
- Preview a draft report;
- Download a draft report onto your desktop in a Microsoft Word document that is fully editable. From there you can add text, tables, maps, etc., delete unwanted sections, and modify it any way you need.
- Advanced uses include mapping specific poverty indicators to extended geographies such as census tract and congressional district.
