DATA YOU CAN USE was created in 2016 by a diverse group of local professionals who help people access data and make it useful in improving community conditions.  

Data You Can Use connects people who need data to people who have data and assist in accessing, analyzing, translating, interpreting and presenting data. They help the Milwaukee community ask the right questions to get the right data, put it into a local context, present it visually and put it to work in addressing issues important to you. Their staff works to democratize data by building local capacity, sharing best practices and helping users sort through the data to surface, explain and address issues of concern. The organization brings technical expertise, knowledge of local context, the ability to convene and collaborate with multiple stakeholders and trust. The organization is also aligning efforts with the Milwaukee Data Initiative and the Code for America Brigade, broadening the base and strengthening the effort.
