Kids Data Center
JWB is a data-driven organization: we pursue innovation and use the latest research, professional knowledge, and best practices to address the needs of Pinellas County children and families. The Kids Data Center features key community indicators, child well-being data, and data stories designed to bring the numbers to life.
Pinellas Child Opportunity Index
The Pinellas Child Opportunity Index (PCOI) is a composite index designed to measure child opportunity and gauge the health of our neighborhoods at the census tract level. This research ranks every neighborhood on indicators that contribute to a child’s healthy development. It provides a richer, more granular view than prior high-risk zones which were based on ZIP codes and focused on a singular variable: poverty.
The PCOI combines a total of 24 indicators from three domains: Education, Health and Environment, and Socioeconomic Status. The PCOI is a single number that can be used to compare estimated opportunity across census tracts, plus sub-scale scores can be derived for each of the three domains.
National Neighborhood Indicators Partnership
JWB is a proud partner of the National Neighborhood Indicators Partnership (NNIP), a learning network, coordinated by the Urban Institute, of independent organizations in 30 cities that share a mission to ensure all communities have access to data and the skills to use information to advance equity and well-being across neighborhoods.
