How to Use Data to Identify Inequities | Aug. 10, 2021 – Recording
What data will help state office staff consider equity? We hear a lot these days about “structural inequities” that face the individuals, families and communities that are served with CSBG funds. We know that data elements to identify inequity can be found in the Community Needs Assessment and the Annual Report, but do we understand the relationship among the data that we have? What else do we need to explore? This workshop will offer suggestions about how CAA data could be analyzed to provide information for decision making. Participants will be asked to discuss how they might use data to help the local CAAs address the issues related to equity in their own communities, and how the state may use data to address equity broadly.
