Greater New Orleans Community Data Center
The Greater New Orleans Community Data Center provides a tool box of fact–driven, data that moves beyond anecdotal experiences and goes deeper than national reports which, too often, miss community nuances that are unique to our region and key to understanding the root causes of our challenges. A core part of the Data Center’s mission is to transform local culture from being data–adverse to embracing data as an intrinsic component of sound policy development. This transformation gained steam significantly after Hurricane Katrina when the Data Center created “The New Orleans Index” to measure key indicators towards recovery.
