How Jobs Can Make Your City Feel Safer

It is often assumed that feelings of safety in a city are directly correlated with that city’s crime rate. Though this is often true, there are also many other factors that can significantly influence feelings of safety in a city—and in some cases, the crime rate isn’t a factor at all. 
In this 20-minute webinar, we will be looking at how local citizen satisfaction data interacts with national data to find some surprising correlations.

New: How to use Drawing Tools

Have a custom boundary that isn’t reported in the Census? Want to make a radius around an economic district, traffic analysis zone, or neighborhood improvement initiative? Or perhaps you'd just like to create a buffer around a new or existing project site? With Drawing Tools, anyone can create a custom boundary (ex: radius, buffer, etc.) directly in mySidewalk and extract data for a specific area of interest. Sign up for this 10-minute webinar and we'll show you how it works!
