The Data Center Shares Stories Behind The Data



NEW ORLEANS – Data alone can’t tell you everything.

         Reps with The Data Center said in order to drive change it is important to understand the community’s perspective and involve community members.

         Listening to the community has always been a core Data Center value, reps said, so the organization is presenting stories behind the data in The New Orleans Youth Index 2016.

         The Data Center, though its partnership with students and alumni of the New Orleans Center for the Creative Arts (NOCCA), produced films highlighting youth issues that connect to the data from The Youth Index.
