Urban Data Pioneers is a program that empowers teams of city employees and community members to work in teams to deeply understand questions through data analysis.

Launched in 2017, Urban Data Pioneers invited residents and city employees to become part of data-focused cohorts, each of which focused on a single issue and spent 10 weeks gathering information to deliver to city officials. Since launching, the program has combed through data on traffic crashes, land use, and blight. One group wanted to link data on utility payments and evictions to figure out if targeted action can help residents avoid losing their homes. Another created a new way to prioritize street maintenance, and it's been adapted by the city.
