CDRPC Local Government Workshop Webinar: “CapitalRegionIndicators.org and Other Data Tools and Resources”

March 17, 2021 @ 1:00 pm


CDRPC staff will review capitalregionindicators.org. Capital Region Indicators is a joint initiative of the Capital District Regional Planning Commission (CDRPC), Capital Region Chamber, The Community Foundation for the Greater Capital Region and the Capital District Transportation Committee. This initiative seeks to help a wide variety of public and private organizations better understand the communities of New York’s Capital Region. Using the best available information, the website serves as a common source for data and interactive visualizations that will inform community members on critical topics related to the economic and social health, as well as progress of our region.

The purpose of NY’s Capital Region Indicators is to:

• Provide high quality, reliable, objective and up-to-date data

• Spur discussion about and build consensus around our region’s key indicators

• Help better understand changes in our communities’ well-being over time to better target investments to address chronic and emerging challenges and community needs

• Provide information relevant to community and regional planning

• Serve as a key resource for data needed for grant applications and reports developed by public and private organizations

The site was custom-designed by the Albany Visualization and Informatics Lab (AVAIL) located in the Geography and Planning Department at the University at Albany, State University of New York, and is maintained by CDRPC. In addition, CDRPC staff will provide an overview of other data resources including Data.Census.Gov and Census Business Builder.

Speakers, Mark Castiglione, Kate Maynard, Josh Tocci.
