Across the U.S. and around the world, cities and communities are responsible for addressing the everyday needs of their residents. From providing critical safety net services to fostering economic development opportunities and advocating for individuals in need, local governments have a growing list of responsibilities. Collecting and analyzing data can equip local leaders with insights and capacity to better serve their communities and prepare for their futures. Capitalizing on these opportunities, however, requires the support of multiple stakeholders to adopt new approaches for leveraging open data in decision-making.
