9 月初,许多纽约州中部的居民被一则电视新闻惊醒:与全美其他城市相比,锡拉丘兹黑人居民的经济差距位居第二。 在线借贷机构 LendingTree 在研究了五年的美国人口普查数据后得出了这一结论。

虽然锡拉丘兹与其他城市相比的排名对我们来说是新信息,但差距的存在却并非如此。 几年前,我们在类似数据的指导下,启动了黑人平等与卓越基金。 我们以数据为依据,列举了预期寿命、家庭收入中位数、婴儿死亡率和四年级阅读水平方面的差距。 迄今为止,自 2020 年以来,该基金已向黑人领导的组织发放了 130 万美元,以帮助扭转 LendingTree 研究最近强调的态势。

几十年来,社区基金会一直致力于为我们社区的所有儿童和成人争取公平公正的结果,但这些数据让我们意识到,如果我们不承认种族是社会问题的决定性因素,我们就会忽略房间里的一头大象。

并不是只有黑人社区成员才会发现自己陷入了比任何一个人或家庭都要严重的困境。 因此,我们今年在 CNY Vitals 中增加了种族平等板块 CNY Vitals是我们的 “社区状况 “网站,就影响本地区健康和进步的重要主题提供共同的数据源和交互式可视化。 它不仅为社区成员提供了信息,而且也是我们确定需求并启动 “LeadSafeCNY“等战略举措来满足这些需求的重要资源。

也许不足为奇的是,该仪表板几乎包含了 LendingTree 使用的所有指标(房屋所有权、教育程度、家庭收入和失业率)以及更多指标。

CNY Vitals 中已有许多这样的数据点,但我们通过对以下关键领域的数据进行分类,扩大了我们的服务范围:

  1. 居民与公民参与
  2. 教育
  3. 福祉与财富积累
  4. 就业与收入

我们希望公开这些信息能够促进讨论和规划社区投资,同时我们也在利用这些信息为我们的工作提供信息。 有关这些差距的数据被纳入社区基金会的战略规划指标,目的是为社区带来积极的变化。

例如,在长期关注扫盲的地方,我们现在制定了按种族分列的扫盲改进目标。 同样,我们现在也为一系列按种族分类的群体制定了减少铅暴露的目标。 这样,我们的工作继续以数据为指导。

我们诚邀您访问cnyvitals.org,进一步了解纽约州中部的社区需求。
