Neighborhood Change Database 2010

Urban Institute   (NNIP Coordinator)

January 2012 to April 2013

The Urban Institute, and GeoLytics, Inc., a private firm specializing in the development of demographic and geographic data products, are producing an update of an important data resource that will enable policymakers, community organizations, and researchers to examine and analyze changes that have occurred in U.S. neighborhoods over the past four decades. Neighborhood Change Database (NCDB) 2010 will combine tract-level data from the 1970–2010 decennial censuses and the latest American Community Survey into one easy-to-use product, providing a unique source of data with variables and tract boundaries that are consistently defined across years. NCDB 2010 is expected to be released for purchase from GeoLytics in late fall 2012 (owners of previous versions of the NCDB will be eligible for special upgrade pricing for NCDB 2010).

The project also includes a series of research briefs on changing conditions of neighborhoods over the past decade.

The NCDB 2010 has been made possible through funding from the Rockefeller Foundation.
