Data 101 with Community Facts
The Data Initiative hosted an educational workshop to support community partners to learn the skills to help them make data-driven decisions. This pdf is a summary of the workshop Mingming recently led. Below is a brief description of the workshop.
Data is critical to understanding our world. With Community Facts, a digital data tool created by The Piton Foundation’s Data Initiative that provides free, neighborhood-level information for the seven-county Denver metro region, you can transform information into insight.
Workshop attendees had the opportunity to:
