A2 datadive focus hope final presentation

  1. 1. Focus: HOPEOutput from the A2 Datadive (February 2012) Except where otherwise noted, this work is available under a Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 License. Copyright © 2012 The Regents of the University of Michigan.
  2. 2. Mapping Participant data• The Data: • Participants of various Focus: HOPE programs identified by their addresses• The Work: • Associated each address with a Unique ID • Addresses were “cleaned” of personal information • Addresses were then geocoded (latitude, longitude) • Points mapped to show geographic dispersion
  3. 3. Map of Focus: HOPE Participantssource: American Community Survey (files: “acsFocusHopeDictionary.csv”and “acsFocusHopeEstimates”) and and Focus: HOPE participant data
  4. 4. Map of Focus: HOPE Participants LINK TO INTERACTIVE MAP ON GOOGLE FUSION TABLES Hdatadive/
  5. 5. Doing the same thing in GoogleFusion Tables• With formatted addresses: • ex. 1342 Main Street, Detroit, MI 48238• Save in Excel as a .csv file (comma separated values)• In Google Docs, start a new “Table (beta)”• Upload the address .csv file• Under “File” select “Geocode”• Under “Visualize” select “Map” to map the points• There are ways to extend these maps: • Fusion Table Layers Wizard (link here) • Layers give richness to map • Census information • Additional points of interest• Additional tutorial (link here)
  6. 6. A Demographic Picture of the HopeVillage Initiative Neighborhood • Focus: HOPE’s HVI census tracts are not so very different than the rest of Detroit • How to read this table: • N = number of tracts, Median, Minimum value, Maximum valuesource: file “Census Summary Stats HVI vs DET.rtf” and US Census
  7. 7. Public Safety, Traffic, and Access• Focus:HOPE facilities and other HVI neighborhood amenities (schools, shops) may be accessed differently by different participants • HVI residents • Walk, bike, car, transit • Non-HVI residents • Car, transit• HVI residents may face some barriers to participation • Pedestrian safety – noted by pedestrian injury and crash severity on some roads • Davison (people are using pedestrian island near Linwood, despite topped barriers) • Fenkell • Fencing of commercial/industrial properties and small number of North-South pass-throughs lengthens walk/bike trips

  9. 9. Recommendations for FutureData Collection• Standardization across reporting forms • Each program should use the same form• Street Address should be in a separate field than Apt No. • Makes geocoding easier• Street Address should include: • What type of street it is (Street, Drive, Rd) • Directional information as necessary (West, East)• To monitor participants across programs consider uploading participant data into a Microsoft Access database • Each participant would automatically be given a UniqueID • You can create an interface to make data entry easier
  10. 10. Future Areas of Research• Compare HVI area against a “statistically” similar geographic area and compare over the life-span of the Hope Village Initiative • Could run more “robust” statistics in the future of the impact of the HVI• In the future, considering asking residents how they traveled to facility • Want to understand whether people are able to access the facilities and if so how
