Neighborhood Data Center

The Nonprofit Center of Milwaukee maintains a collection of maps and data they call the Neighborhood Data Center. Take a look around. The website describes the resources as “data, maps, reports, and analyzes to allow organizations to better plan and develop programs that address the problems of Milwaukee neighborhoods.”

Available at the site is a 2005 publication entitled “Challenges and Opportunities: A Data Profile of the Making Connection Milwaukee Community.” This publication profiles the areas of Milwaukee that make up “Making Connection Milwaukee.” Find information on safety, workforce development, and education.

The site also includes sections for map collections, data tables, and documents. In the map collection, the researcher can search a variety of categories including crime, education, poverty, race and mobility. Selecting a category will produce a list of maps on specific topics. For example, choosing “mobility” results in several options – number in same house 5 yrs. ago, owners of same house for 20+ years, number in different county 5 years ago, etc.

The Milwaukee Data Sources organizes links to relevant city information such as condominium projects, property information, aldermanic districts, the COMPASS program, etc.
