The Baltimore Neighborhood Indicators Alliance-Jacob France Institute (BNIA-JFI) is dedicated to improving the quality of life in Baltimore City neighborhoods through the annual update of the Vital Signs report that tracks key indicators for Baltimore’s neighborhoods. BNIA-JFI engages outreach and trainings to help community-based organizations use the data to improve quality of life in their neighborhood. BNIA-JFI also hosts Baltimore Data Day, where community leaders, nonprofit organizations, governmental entities and civic technologists come together to see the latest trends in community-based data, technology and tools and learn how other groups are using data to support and advance constructive change.
