The legacy of structural racism: Redlining and neighborhood health
Structural racism is a fundamental determinant of health. Redlining is one form of structural racism whereby discriminatory practices denied access to credit and insurance for borrowers in neighborhoods determined to be high risk. Dr. Meier’s talk presents results examining the association of historic redlining with neighborhood prevalence of health conditions.

Designing a homicide and non-fatal shooting dashboard to emphasize context
Dashboards are an interesting and convenient way to visualize many data fields related to a particular set of events but developing them is not a mindless task. As with other data-driven projects, there are ways that presentation or calculations with the data can exacerbate misconceptions or highlight the wrong take-away. Andrew Yaspan from the Medical College of Wisconsin explains why they are using a dashboard to look at the circumstances around homicides and non-fatal shootings in Milwaukee, and how the design of the dashboard is intended to invite exploration in context.

Spatial Analysis of Gun Dealers and Regulatory Violations
The Brady Campaign was one of last year’s Data Dream winners. With the help of their Zilber School of Public Health graduate student, this presentation will focus on the findings from a spatial analysis of Wisconsin and Illinois gun dealers, as well as compliance inspection violations that occurred between 2015-2018. This data raises additional questions about the association between firearm availability and firearm-related violence.

Using Data to Empower Community
Last year, the Northwestern Mutual Data Science Institute worked to make us at Walnut Way to make our Data Dream come true. The project helped bring more awareness and a better understanding to the challenges and opportunities that residents face with sustaining ownership, rental affordability, property values, crime, and education. Antonio Butts, Executive Director of Walnut Way shares the valuable work done through the Data You Can Use partnership to bring data to leverage economic and community wealth building efforts in Lindsay Heights.

Setting the Stage: Housing Data for the City of Milwaukee
In December 2019, the City of Milwaukee Department of City Development fortuitously released its first Housing Affordability Report. Fully online and interactive, this report captures the City’s housing needs, documents housing programs, and now serves as a baseline for tracking housing changes due to the impact of the pandemic.
