CSAC DataPile Updated for 2018
January 4, 2018
Quick: how many children live in your county? How many road miles does the county maintain? How much did you spend on public protection? What’s your adult protective services caseload? What’s the county seat?
Hopefully, you know the last one, but you have more pressing things to keep in your head than all the data that describes the demographics, caseloads, and finances of your county, much less the other 57 in the state.
CSAC’s DataPile provides a quick reference for county officials (and the general public) who are looking for commonly referenced datasets. Over 100 datasets are included.
Instead of scouring the internet for the information, you can download a single spreadsheet that has the most recent information collected in one place. And if you’re looking for more historical information, almost every column header provides a link to the data’s source.
CSAC’s data and research team updates the DataPile frequently. You can find the most recent copy of it on CSAC’s website. If you have any questions about the information there, please contact Geoff Neill, CSAC’s principal policy and fiscal analyst, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
