City of Hartford
The City of Hartford uses PolicyMap to produce detailed demographic profiles of the North Hartford Promise Zone.
“PolicyMap is a warehouse of a lot of different data sources, all in one place.”
Megan Schneider, the Data and Research AmeriCorps VISTA for the North Hartford Promise Zone, needed to create a profile of the area to inform decision-making and track progress.
Rather than separately downloading information for each of the 10 census tracts contained within the North Hartford Promise Zone, Megan used PolicyMap to create a “custom region” so that she could quickly download data for the entire Promise Zone all at once.
