What works to improve low-income communities? The book, What Counts: Harnessing Data for America’s Communities, a new volume of essays published jointly by the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco and the Urban Institute, argues that to answer this question we need to enhance the ways that we collect, use, and share data across institutions and sectors.
HomeKeeper is featured in a chapter titled The Transformative Power of Shared Data, written by Annie Donovan and Rick Jacobus of Cometrics. Annie Donovan also spoke at the book launch and webcast event in Washington DC.
“There is tremendous power in data; it enables better decision making and wiser resource allocation. There is good reason that we’re having a national conversation about how the social sector can become more data driven. Much is at stake.”
– Annie Donovan and Rick Jacobus, Cometrics
