Established in 2009, Neighborhood Nexus brings better data and insights to the thousands of decision-makers throughout metro Atlanta.

Rapid change in the Atlanta area drives the need for more and better information. Neighborhood Nexus is a community intelligence system, providing data, tools, and expertise as a catalyst to create more equitable opportunity for all of the region’s residents. Our aim is to support a regional network of information-led leaders and residents, government and businesses, advocates and service providers with information, tools and expertise that meet challenges, leverage assets and create opportunity.

As a community information system, Neighborhood Nexus is an invaluable community resource that uses the latest technology and respected expertise to provide the most accurate, up-to-date data and research about the Atlanta region’s communities and neighborhoods.

  • Our system houses more than 700 categories of demographic indicators—and is growing.
  • Data from the U.S. Census cross-references against state and regional information from sources such as the Department of Education, the Department of Public Health and the Atlanta Regional Commission.
  • Data is aggregated in “quality of life” categories that initially include health, wealth and wisdom (i.e. education) that are relevant to community decision-makers.
  • Data is accessible to anyone, 24/7.
  • The site provides community analytics through tools such as Weave, as well as mapping that allows the data to be sorted down to the neighborhood (i.e., census tract) level.
  • Neighborhood Nexus allows users to spend time on analytics, rather than on gathering data itself.
