2020 NIP EDITION and Weekly Updates

June 27, 2021 12:11 AM

Let's talk data!

The 2020 NIP Edition is finally here!

A new set of data (2020 Edition) has been added to the City of Madison's Neighborhood Indicators Project (NIP)--a tracking system with trend data going back to 2008. NIP was designed by the City of Madison in partnership with the University of Wisconsin-Madison's Applied Population Lab. Interested in learning more about NIP data and the NIP website? The City of Madison Planning Division offers free workshops to local organizations. Please contact Urvashi Martin at for more details.

I have reviewed some of the data and I am including in this update a few tips on how to navigate the website.

Before you enter the site learn about NIP:

NIP About

Follow these 10 tips to help you navigate the site.  In this example, the focus is District 10 Neighborhoods.  The map allows you to compare up to 5 areas against each other and against the city. The site provides several tabs (variables) associated with census data, housing, public safety, etc. Each tab contains multiple subcategories for you to explore.

NIP Navigation

In this example you can compare "Verified Criminal Offenses", "Crashes" & "Fire Calls", a definition of each variable is also included in the webpage.  When we are talking about public safety it is important to recognize that public safety covers many agencies across the city.  Collaboration across agencies is essential in order to better serve our communities.  Public engagement and awareness are also essential in the prevention of issues such as crime, fire and crashes.
