New Features! New Data!
MPIP is pleased to announce that MetroPhilaMapper, our free web-based mapping utility, has undergone several upgrades. Thanks to Azavea Inc, MetroPhilaMapper now offers several new analysis features. We have also added new crime and public safety data.
All the information from our past annual reports along with hundreds of new indicators are now accessible via MetroPhilaMapper, our interactive map making application. You can make your own maps, explore the data in tables and take the information to use in your own reports and presentations. Just click on the Making Maps/Explore Data link above and start mapping!
In partnership with the Chester Youth Collaborative, MPIP and Temple’s UCCP are collecting survey data on adult engagement in the city of Chester. The survey, which is largely based on the Saguaro seminar’s survey at Harvard University, is being administered to adult residents in Chester by youth from the community. The data from these surveys will be used to formulate focus group questions with the hope of stimulating larger community interest and dialogue around the issues of adult engagement.
