Instant data about your neighborhood, however you want to define it.
KnowPlace is a tool for creating neighborhood-level statistics for any community in Metro Boston. Unlike other sites that provide tract-by-tract data points or municipal snapshots, KnowPlace allows the user to draw their own neighborhood boundaries and access reports that aggregate information from multiple sources and data tables. The site combines tract-level data into neighborhood-level statistics and also provides statistical measures of reliability for survey data. Users can choose from pre-defined reports that include data on a variety of topics, including demographics, diversity, housing, youth, transportation, and prosperity. Data can be exported or downloaded as a shareable PDF report.
KnowPlace is currently in beta release and was funded in part by a Knight Foundation Prototype Fund grant in 2014.
