What Data Do the Community Snapshots Include?
The Community Snapshots contain much (but not all) of the same information that is already reported on this site for Fall River and New Bedford, but now expanded to include all communities on the Southcoast. Data includes (but is not limited to):
- Population and population growth
- Educational attainment
- Race and ethnicity
- Unemployment rates
- Housing-cost burden
- Median home values
- Commuting patterns
- Top industries
- School district information
How Can I Use the Data?
Each community snapshot can be used in its current form and are not copyrighted documents. Feel free to copy, cut, and paste any needed information. All we ask is that you cite the original data source, and if using the images themselves, include attribution to the Public Policy Center.
