Making data accessible

Community Assessments are easy. They are even easier with consistent, intuitive, annual updates.

How does it work?

Much of the data needed for a Community Assessment is standard from one year to the next. The data itself changes every year, but the data sources remain the same. I automate much of the process of gathering Census and Program Information Report data, and these two data sources alone are often enough to produce an annual update for a Community Assessment.

Samples of my work

The rest of the Community Assessment can be completed by following an easy process, some of which is highlighted below.

Community Assessment Requirement What your program does What I do for you
Demographic and Economic data Your program defines your service area I gather city and county level data for your service area, and compare it to state and national trends
Family Needs Your program decides what other Head Start/Early Head Start programs are most comparable to yours I gather state and nationwide Program Information Report data and compare it to needs data in your PIR that you have already gathered
Family Needs, Community Strengths and work/training schedule Together we develop and conduct a survey of parents, Head Start staff and community partners Compile results, create charts, graphs and tables, and craft a narrative based on our shared analysis
