Charlotte is a fast-growing city where the skyline changes by the month and neighborhoods are reshaped at a disorienting pace. But there are a multitude of data sources to help you understand the city and your community. 

You can start with interactive maps like the Quality of Life Explorer (produced by the Urban Institute in partnership with the city of Charlotte and Mecklenburg County), which graphically display about 80 variables ranging from average education level to household income to proximity to pharmacies. 
In addition to the institute’s data resources, this blog outlines online sources to explore specific topics, including displacement risk, builting permits, and census data.
