5-11-12: Vital Signs 10
Each year, the Baltimore Neighborhood Indicators Alliance (BNIA) releases Vital Signs, a portrait of the city’s neighborhoods in data. The report includes what you might expect—graduation rates, crime rates, foreclosure rates—and what you might not expect, such as how often residents report dirty streets and alleys, or how many people are getting to work without a car.
The tenth edition of Vital Signs goes live on the web today, allowing us to see in the numbers how Baltimore has changed over the last decade.
The Baltimore Neighborhood Indicators Alliance lives within the University of Baltimore’s Jacob France Institute, where Seema Iyer is associate director. Today, Sheilah talks to Seema Iyer and to BNIA project manager Matthew Kachura.
