PolicyMap: GIS Mapping Data

Steve Wien's insight:

PolicyMap provides a multitude of indicators down to the blockgroup (neighborhood) level. These include estimated household income, poverty, housing affordability, ethnicity (including race), nativity, and rental prevalence. The site is used by a number of university libraries.

 

The site involves a learning curve and patience. Create an account and access much data without a fee.

Kansas Health Matters: Better health through community

Steve Wien's insight:

The Kansas Health Matters website is a collaboration of eight Kansas agencies. Once on the site, click the "Community Data" tab, then the "Community Dashboard" tab to arrive at a search engine. Indicator results cover a variety of community health topics.

 

Search by county, zip code, or census tract. If you leave "Search All Indicators" as the selection, you'll get data with further explanatory links. When you search by county, you can choose a breakout by race/ethnicity, age, and gender; breakout data is presented in bar graphs. This search engine worked for me on a PC, but not on an Android tablet.
