Community Indicators for Your Community

Real, lasting community change is built around knowing where you are, where you want to be, and whether your efforts are making a difference. Indicators are a necessary ingredient for sustainable change. And the process of selecting community indicators -- who chooses, how they choose, what they choose -- is as important as the data you select.

This is an archive of thoughts I had about indicators and the community indicators movement. Some of the thinking is outdated, and many of the links may have broken over time.

HMDA and IRS Data Releases

Kathy Pettit informs us through the NNIP Listserve that two new data sets are available:

In case you missed it, two great datasets were released last week - the new Home Mortgage Disclosure Act data (tract-level) & new IRS individual tax statistics data (zip code-level).

1. HMDA 2006

HMDA data are collected by a financial institution as a result of applications for, and originations and purchases of, home-purchase loans (including refinancings) and home-improvement loans for each calendar year. For the first time, flat files (both for the entire U.S. and by MSA) are available for download.

2. 2005 Individual Income Tax Return Statistics by Zip Code
Zip Code data tables for Tax Year 2005 are now available for purchase. Data tables include the number of individual income tax returns; the total number of exemptions and number of dependent exemptions (which approximates population); adjusted gross income; salaries and wages; taxable interest; total tax;contributions; number of returns with Schedules C and F; and number of returns with Schedule A, by State and 5-digit Zip Code. In addition to these items, data also show the amount of taxable dividends; net capital gain/loss, IRA payment adjustment; self-employed pension adjustment; taxes paid deduction; alternative minimum tax; tax before credits; earned income credit; and number of returns prepared by paid preparers. Zip Code and State data are derived from addresses shown on the returns when filed with the IRS.,,id=96947,00.html
