Data You Can Use, in collaboration with the Community Development Alliance, is pleased to release this first round of indicator maps for Milwaukee’s neighborhoods. These indicators are intended to help community members, planners, policy makers, and neighborhood organizations to plan, document and explore key pieces of information about their neighborhoods. The indicators have been chosen based on a review of best practice, their importance, and interest to users. Selection followed some defined principles. (Indicator Principles)
In 2013, the city released a map stemming from a market value analysis and including indicators of important market conditions. This project builds on that work but expands beyond physical structures to include other important aspects of a neighborhood. Here we release initial population indicators and measures of equity and access ( MKE Indicators – Status). This is a work in progress and will be expanded to include interactive maps. and additional categories.

Data You Can Use will offer a series of data workshops using a step-by-step tutorial on how to use the maps and data of the MKE Indicators. Participants will be able to interact with the maps and data in a way that is user-friendly, informative, and practical. Workshops are designed for beginner/intermediate data users and will feature a supportive hands-on learning approach. Participants will build an understanding of the data and how it can be used to guide their own neighborhood strategies. A certificate of completion will be given to users who complete all four workshops. To learn more about these workshops, please email us at: [email protected]org
