One of NSGIC’s goals is to promote geospatial information integration to help inform public and private decision-makers. A similar goal is met by a new web-based tool called MyDistrictData, created by Citi Community Development and PolicyMap. MyDistrictData offers users the ability to create reports on economic, employment, financial, educational, and housing conditions in their district. The hope is that access to these data will equip decision makers to make more informed recommendations as they consider their constituents. While much of the data is collected and presented at the state level, MyDistrictData produces reports at the congressional district level to show clear variation between districts. Currently, only reports on workforce and jobs are available. By June, other reports (Money & Savings, Education, and Housing) will be available. All data is free, public, and encouraged to be disseminated.
