About the Connected Data for, Economic Mobility Project

The goal of the data standards is to ultimately support real-time access to data and analysis to help public sector decision makers better understand the needs of populat ions, evaluate programs and policies, and collaborate across borders to achieve positive, long-term economic outcomes for residents. Check back here to see the data standards once they are published!

By co-creating an economic mobility data standard with a representative group of staff from US cities, the Center for Applied Public Research will help city staff standardize and share data with their counterparts in a way that allows them to make better data-informed decisions about city services.
