Dear friends and colleagues,

Better data contributes to better decisionmaking. At The Data Center, we know that data can serve as a catalyst for change, or just change the approach to a present issue or challenge. With more than 400,000 visits and downloads from our website last year, we know that individuals and data users recognize the value of having open access to the high-quality, objective, and relevant information The Data Center publishes.

In recent weeks, we have again updated highly valuable data in neighborhood-level demographic products, such as “Neighborhood Profiles”, which covers all 72 New Orleans neighborhoods with 252 data points per neighborhood, and “Who Lives in New Orleans and Metro Parishes Now?”, which identifies trends across the New Orleans metro region.

This past year, we also published our highly anticipated, The New Orleans Prosperity Index: Tricentennial Edition, along with a series of companion essays in the "Tricentennial Collection". In December, we published Benchmarking New Orleans’ Tourism Economy: Hotel and Full-Service Restaurant Jobs, which responds to questions about the number and quality of tourism jobs in New Orleans, while being transparent about the complexity of measuring tourism’s contribution to the economy and income levels for workers. Each of these publications demonstrate The Data Center’s commitment to providing a neutral and objective baseline understanding of New Orleans’ most pressing issues.

Like many nonprofit organizations, we rely on contributions from people like you — community members and decisionmakers who all work toward a more prosperous, inclusive, and sustainable region with good quality of life for all. We hope our work has helped you in your work; and to better understand your community. Our mission is to provide fully independent, timely, valid, and reliable data and analysis to serve as a catalyst for decisionmaking, but we are ever conscious that it is you who brings our data to life.
Today, for #GiveNOLADay, support The Data Center. You can make a difference! Even a small donation of $10 shows that you value the work of The Data Center.

Bringing you the data you need to make informed decisions,

The Data Center team
