Created for presentation at the Richmond Federal Reserve's "Unleashing the Power of Local Data" Conference http://www.richmondfed.org/conferences_and_events/community_development/2011/unleashing_data_20111013.cfm Conference Description: Join the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond for a one-day conference that showcases the best uses of data in local decision-making. Participants will learn from case studies that exhibit communities' innovative use of data to address local problems, and they will engage in hands-on sessions using their own laptops to better understand how to apply data to their communities. To address the growing use of informational graphics to communicate data, the lunch program will feature Column Five Media, Inc., a company that creates compelling graphics for clients such as The Atlantic, Newsweek and Good Magazine. This dynamic conference will demonstrate the power of data to inform decision-making and effect policy.
