The National Neighborhood Indicators Partnership used strategic planning to examine its model in the context of 15 years of local partner experiences and dramatic changes in technology and policy approaches. The process reviewed the functions and institutional arrangements of local data intermediaries and reflected on the continued need for local expertise to help communities use data for decisionmaking. The network outlines its own agenda to expand the use of data to improve local programs and policies, including advocacy for the broader national support system for community information.
