October project update

October finds us working hard on the same projects we were tackling when we wrote September’s project update, but we’ve reached a few milestones worth sharing:

  • The Community Health Needs Assessment for SouthCoast Hospitals, which we worked on with our Center for Policy Analysis colleagues, is available for review here. If there’s a health data point you’re looking for, we’ve probably got it here.
  • Our HOPE VI evaluation has hit a few hiccups with the government shutdown: Census data is no longer accessible! Fortunately, Mike McCarthy did most of the updates over the summer. Here’s hoping census.gov is back online before we need to do one last verification of Taunton-specific data points.
