CommunityData Wiki: A Data Geek’s Dream

This post is written for colleagues with an interest in data and/or children’s issues. I submitted a project idea with the Knight Foundation OpenGovernment News Challenge. I’m asking that you take a look at my CommunityData Wiki submission and consider leaving a comment, requesting clarification, or adding ‘applause’ (by clicking on the small pink heart at the bottom of the page) to the project. The more feedbPeopleGlobeDataack provided, the greater the likelihood the project will be noticed and advanced.

CommunityData Wiki project: http://kng.ht/W7syI6

After years of spending hours and sometimes days seeking out specific data from numerous sources, sorting out irrelevant information, and searching for background information, I want to create something that is accessible, interactive, and relevant to improving outcomes for children, youth, and families. I’m fortunate to have a partner organization with the capacity to make my vision a reality. The increased exposure of the Knight Foundation Challenge will allow us to create something that is responsive to the needs of families and professionals in many related fields. Your time and interest in improving the lives of vulnerable children and youth is greatly appreciated.

As always, I welcome any feedback or suggestions you may have to ensure that the project is responsive to your children, work, or organization.
Thank you!
