Resources included in the Community Development Data Inventory are organized by topic, and each data set is described in a two-page PDF that will help clarify whether the resource is suitable for your needs. Links to the data and supporting materials, as well as screenshots of what you can expect to find on each website, are included to make this resource accessible to a broad audience.
This collection is by no means exhaustive. If you have questions about any of the resources in this inventory or would like to contribute a two-page description of a data set that is useful but not yet part of the collection, please contact Kyle DeMaria,
The Community Development Studies & Education Department would like to thank Shiva Kooragayala and Baylee Childress, former interns, who wrote the descriptions included in the current iteration of the Community Development Data Inventory.
