CINCINNATI (May 1, 2023) — In this first Knowledge Exchange Webinar, learn how to use publicly available data to better understand the families and communities you serve.
We all know data is crucial in telling the story of our work and understanding the communities we serve. While it’s common to turn to Census data for information on our community, single indicators typically don’t provide the socioeconomic context most nonprofit organizations need.
United Way, in collaboration with research partners who wrote the Social Areas of Cincinnati Report (Fifth Edition, 2013), is excited to share how a recent analysis of Census data addresses this issue.
A forthcoming new report (Fall 2023) analyzes multiple socioeconomic indicators found in the Census – such as family income, education, occupation and family structure – to provide greater understanding of social factors affecting families in Cincinnati.
This webinar will share a preview of the report and explain how the use of a socioeconomic status index led to key insights about communities. Attendees will have the opportunity to explore how this analysis and methodology can help inform their own work.
