  • DATA & TECHNOLOGY HealthyCity.org allows users to search for local services, conduct research and connect with their communities. Beyond providing free access to the largest database of community services and localized data variables, HealthyCity.org offers the ability for users to “tell their own story” by uploading their own data or multimedia to the system.More about www.HealthyCity.org:Locate Resources: Focusing on one of our key goals to help families find resources through intermediaries such as case managers, social workers, etc., we display LA County 2-1-1 social service resources. We are partnering with 2-1-1 agencies in other regions of California in order to display that data and increase accessibility to resources.Conduct Analysis: HealthyCity.org has the capacity to map community characteristics (over 2300 variables) such as demographic, health, economic, park/green space, etc. You can create community profiles and find gaps in services in relation to need. With the statewide expansion, Healthy City has expanded crime and public safety data, as well as new statewide health data, child welfare and public assistance data. Web 2.0 Features: Users can upload their own points of interest, create their own neighborhood boundaries, and save maps! For the statewide platform, Healthy City users will be able to create online affinity groups and share maps, charts, videos, pictures, and comments with partners across California.
  • HC.org provides these people with data and technology to support their work within and on behalf of our communities. HC.org helps encourage data-driven planning and inform policy within sectors such as Education, Public Safety, Health, Public Health, Government, etc.

  • By mapping thematic data, you are able to see a certain characteristic about your neighborhood (any geography). You can look at areas that have a high concentration of people in poverty, then look at the resources available to this population. You may be able to identify gaps in services, or begin to look at the allocation of resources.
  • The darker areas show a higher concentration of families in poverty
  • Using the Customize tab, you can alter the data level, year, number of classes, ranges, etc.Remember, you can print, save, and email your map.
