Neighborhood Nexus makes data accessible for everyone!
Learn about tools and resources for understanding your community’s needs, assets, and trends; build capacity to serve and support your community; and make data-informed decisions.
Presented by Tommy Pearce, Executive Director of Neighborhood Nexus.
Launched in 2009, Neighborhood Nexus “brings better data and insights to the thousands of decision-makers throughout metro Atlanta.”
Officials recently named Pearce as executive director charged with expanding the engagement and visibility of Neighborhood Nexus with residents and organizations.
“The Neighborhood Nexus team has built a truly amazing suite of tools and services, enabling data-informed decision-making among community leaders,” Pearce said.
Neighborhood Nexus is a regionally recognized partnership that contributes to the prosperity of metro Atlanta by providing community leaders, government, businesses, advocates and service providers access to and interpretation of community information for the greater good. It is a partnership consisting of the Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC), which manages the daily operations, the Community Foundation for Greater Atlanta, the United Way of Greater Atlanta and the Metro Atlanta Chamber of Commerce. Currently, Neighborhood Nexus houses more than 5,000 socioeconomic and demographic variables for every neighborhood, zip code, city, county, legislative district and public school in the state and works with a broad range of stakeholders in the education, health, equity and poverty prevention fields.
