The Nexus Between Data and Public Health

DATA2GO.NYC is one innovative tool discussed in a Governing piece that looks at new analytical tools helping policymakers use data to improve public health.

Created by Measure of America with a grant from Helmsley, DATA2GO.NYC enables users to map and compare well-being in New York City’s 59 community districts. Health indicators such as cancer deaths, life expectancy, and low birth weights allow policymakers to better understand and focus on improving community wellness.
