NNIP: Where Data Geeks Go To Meet
Last week, the National Neighborhood Indicators Partnership (NNIP) hosted its spring meeting in Baltimore. NNIP is a collaboration of the Urban Institute and local partners in 30 cities to further the development and use of neighborhood-level information systems for community building and local decision-making. Partners meet twice yearly to discuss common threads of their work across cities, to network and build connections between cities, and to keep funders and other national partners up-to-date on the activities of the network. The Poverty Center is a founding partner of the network; co-director Dr. Claudia Coulton helped pull the network together in the ’90s and we’ve been involved ever since.
