The City of Memphis has unveiled a state-of-the-art data hub that the public can access 24/7.
The new data website includes six main features:
- Performance Dashboard – review city government metrics in the following categories: Neighborhoods, Good Government, Public Safety, Youth, and Jobs.
- Data Stories – read about the different ways in which City divisions are using data to improve service delivery.
- Public Safety – explore the mapping tool that shows the types and frequency of reported crime incidents in different neighborhoods.
- Open 311 – examine open and closed service requests across the city.
- Civic Assets – discover community resources in specific areas, such as police stations, libraries, and parks.
- Capital Projects – see what City projects are underway.
Users can also access the public data catalog, submit suggestions for future dataset releases, and read the Memphis Data Hub Guide to understand more about the site.
“The new site is intended to increase usability and resident engagement, and it builds on the Mayor’s commitment to hold city government accountable for its performance,” Craig Hodge, of the Office of Performance Management said. “Internally, the Data Hub is the foundation for how we continually use data to inform our decisions; having a platform to load and share data across divisions allows City leaders to break down silos and better work together to be ‘brilliant at the basics’.”
