New data added to Madison’s revamped Neighborhood Indicators Project website

A new set of data (2018 Edition) has been added to the City of Madison’s Neighborhood Indicators Project (NIP)—a tracking system with trend data going back to 2008. This new data is located on NIP’s revamped website with improved organization and new variables. Users can explore trends, create custom reports, and download the full dataset.

NIP allows users to follow a neighborhood’s wellness over time, and can help users understand changes within Madison neighborhoods. Data can be selected at three different geographies: Plan Districts, Neighborhood Associations, and the City of Madison as a whole.

NIP is a valuable tool for a wide range of entities, such as community-based organizations, non-profits, the business community, and governmental officials and staff. The data can be used for many purposes including writing grants, and helping neighborhood organizations build capacity in needed areas. NIP was designed by the City of Madison in partnership with the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Applied Population Lab.
