Decreasing social and economic disparities in San Antonio and Bexar County

Community Information Now (CINow) supports the vision of the United Way of San Antonio and Bexar County (UWSA) for a San Antonio where educational disparities by race and income disappear, families have the support they need to provide for their children, and employers eliminate gender- and race-based wage disparities. To realize this vision, UWSA’s investment strategy has been guided by four Impact Councils composed of residents, nonprofit staff, content experts, funders, academics, and government officials. The Ready Children, Successful Students, Strong Individuals and Families, and Safety Net Impact Councils prioritize issues for investment, develop strategies to address those issues, and choose key social and economic indicators to monitor population-level progress, adjusting strategies and investments over time in response to what they learn from data provided by CINow…

What People are Saying

Public Health Camp and Data Literacy
A manager of research operations and community engagement led a public health camp with high school students. Part of the camp involved the students creating Capstone projects on various health topics. After receiving training on Bexar Data Dive, the students were able to create maps, tables, and other graphics for their projects, as well as pull relevant stats.

The overall goal for Public Health Camp is to increase the future public health and biomedical workforce capacity by building student awareness and knowledge of population health related professions. The CINow Bexar Data Dive presentation gave our students a new resource for extracting local, relevant health data for their Capstone projects. Their presentations included maps, tables, and other graphics that helped to easily convey disparities in health among different zip codes. The Bexar Data Dive tool will be very useful for students as they progress in their educational careers.

Anytime I need to tell the story of San Antonio – the story of needs in San Antonio – the times I need to meet people where they are to bring them along – to expose them to how all of our prosperity is linked – I think and use CINow.

Campaign Blogs and Data
A senior researcher used Bexar Data Dive to write position papers for a campaign blog. They pulled data on a county precinct to assist with the campaign for a county commissioner’s court seat.

So far I’ve used data from Bexar Data Dive for two blogs… And needless to say, I could not have written them without your work and CINow.

It has definitely saved me time and stress. As I mentioned before, it is often my starting point so I really appreciate the structure it has provided to my data search process.

Using Bexar Data Dive to Identify Health Disparities
A Deputy Chief Public Health and Equity Officer for a teaching hospital used the data in Bexar Data Dive to finish writing the implementation strategy for a health initiative.

I needed more context than what was in the Bexar CHNA. So, I basically found the indicator (or a proxy measure) in Data Dive to do a comparison. I also noted disparities, at a super high level. The appendix I included in our strategy looks like this.

Public Health Camp and Data Visualization
CINow provided a Bexar Data Dive training to students at a public health camp. Afterward, the students used Bexar Data Dive to create presentations on health disparities in Bexar County.

I really appreciate the help you gave us for our capstone projects and plan to use the Bexar Data Dive for future projects. I can’t wait to see what else that could be added to the website.
