OCTH 543 Emerging Practice: Find Community Data

Trend Analysis and Demographics Sources

Community Data

Community Demographics & Crime/Safety

Use these sites for information on population, diversity, income/poverty, employment, and crime/safety for your community.

For more general information on your community, such as services for children/elderly, recreation and community development, Google the name of your community and locate the homepage for the city or county government, and peruse the site.

There may be an organization that has collected relevant data for you already. It's worth googling [name of community] indicators to see if there is a portal with some or all of the data you want.
