Neighborhood Nexus

Community intelligence creates intelligent communities.

Information Matters

Neighborhood Nexus helps mission-driven organizations across the region ask the right questions, use the best data, tell compelling stories, and make informed decisions. With more robust and confident data capacities, organizations can better serve and strengthen their constituents and communities.

How It Works

Neighborhood Nexus serves the region in three main ways: comprehensive access, custom insights, and data fluency.

Community data from national, state, and local sources are made available in one place at various geographic levels: neighborhood, census tract, city, county, legislative district. Not only can the data be accessed and downloaded, but we provide free mapping tools to visualize and analyze critical community indicators. This allows you to spend your time analyzing and making decisions rather than looking for data.

If you need more tailored tools or analysis, Neighborhood Nexus does that too. Whether informing strategic planning, guiding data-driven volunteer recruitment and management, or creating a community resource, Nexus can help you identify insights and tell stories with data.

Neighborhood Nexus understands that building the tools aren’t enough. As part of its strategy of getting data out of the computer and into the community, data fluency training is available. Whether you’re trying to understand where to find and what to do with data, what tools are available and how to use them, or even what the civic and ethical implications are at stake, Nexus is here for you.
