Neighborhood Portraits

The Neighborhood Portraits project uses data from the American Community Survey to create a series of tables describing the population, households, and housing in Milwaukee neighborhoods. The framework we use is based on input and advice from community organizers working in the neighborhoods supported by Milwaukee’s Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program. Data You Can Use and our partners hope that these tables continue to be used by those working in Milwaukee neighborhoods in their work planning, organizing, and funding development work and programing.
