Community Development Data Guidebook

Collecting sound data and using it intelligently is consistently important for community developers, to evaluate the results of their own work and to tell the story of that work to residents, funders and other important stakeholders. The Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco has compiled a “how to” guide focused on collecting and using data for community development research.

The guidebook lists a variety of available data resources on topics such as demographics, housing, economic development, employment and other facets of a comprehensive community development approach. It also includes information on how to use the data, particularly how to weave different data sources together to form a complete picture of the context for community development programs and their performance.
