Empowering stakeholders with information about Rochester
The Neighborhood Data Map is an interactive mapping tool that provides community stakeholders with the ability to view, aggregate and analyze pertinent neighborhood data for a wide range of uses such as grant applications, strategic planning and trend observations.
The map provides 53 city economic and social condition indicators gathered from a combination of data gathered by the City and the U.S. Bureau of Census. The Rochester Neighborhood Data Map divides the city of Rochester into its 229 Census Designated Block Groups.
The information available includes economic, social, demographic, crime and physical data sets such as the number of vacant structures, crime rates, median household income, unemployment rates, numbers of children in school, homeownership and much more.
About the Map
The Neighborhood Data Map uses an intuitive, visual interface commonly seen on the Internet. The city is displayed by polygons that represent the Census Block Groups. Each polygon links to a window that reveals the indicators, along with a dashboard that allows users to organize the indicators to suit their interests and needs. The map includes layering and filtering functionalities, which allows users to determine which Block Groups have the highest percentages of each indicator.
All City-sourced data is for the 2012 calendar year, while Census data comes from the 2010 Decennial Census as well as the American Community Survey 2011 five year average.
New data will added annually in February, and figures reflecting changes over time figures will be available starting in 2014.
