Online data tools

Just launched! Bexar Data Dive en Español

Community Information Now (CI:Now), a nonprofit localdata intermediary in San Antonio, Texas, has just launched the Spanish-language beta version of Bexar Data Dive, a powerful new tool to help people find and use data about community conditions in Bexar County. The Spanish-language version includes all the same features, data, and other content as the English-language version.

Accessible online at, the platform:

  • Is built to be easy to use but very powerful
  • Pulls together local data on a wide range of issue areas, including health, demographic, civil and social, education, economic, housing, criminal justice, environmental, and transportation indicators
  • Allows the user to explore data (if available) by county, census tract, ZIP code, or a new census tract-based geography called Statistical Small Area (SSA); and to break out that data by race/ethnicity, age group, and sex
  • Makes it easy to compare different geographies and groups, such as race/ethnicity groups

To use the Spanish-language version, click “Español” at the upper right of the screen. In either language, Bexar Data Dive works best on a larger screen such as a desktop PC or laptop. New feature development and data additions are ongoing.

One of just two awards made nationwide, in late 2021 CI:Now won a three-year grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of Minority Health to help people in Bexar County access and use data to reduce health disparities and inequities. In addition to supporting development of the data platform itself, the grant also supports outreach, training, and technical assistance to help people understand and use the data.

Huge thanks to the many local residents who co-designed Bexar Data Dive with us through a User-Centered Design process, giving their time and thoughtful input in design focus groups and interviews, survey responses, and beta testing sessions.
