  1. Data & Statisticsand Its Relation to Baltimore Caitlin Breitenbach, Laura Klipp, Kelsey Philon, Michael Remmert, Paul Monteferrante

  2. Data and Statistics • Data and statistics can be defined as individual facts or items of information • These facts or items of information can be found in a variety of sources

  3. AUTHORITATIVE • Data is generally always correct because it is published by government organizations • There are no if, and’s, or but’s • Either it’s a fact or it’s not

  4. Where to Look? • These are sources available to the public in different forms • Books • Magazines • Internet • Newspapers • Various others

  5. What Data? • Population • Crime Rate • School Statistics • Poverty Rate • Health Statistics • Neighborhood Statistics • Workforce • Religion • Demographics

  6. Population • Where? • http://quickfacts.census.gov/qfd/states/24000.htm • Relatively Easy to find • Easy to trust (government website)

  7. Crime Rate • Crime Rates are specific to cities • Where? • http://www.disastercenter.com/crime/mdcrime.htm • Site posted crime rates provided by the FBI from 1960-2005 by county or surrounding areas

  8. School Statistics • School Statistics also are provided on a county by county basis • These can be located on the Maryland State Department of Education website • http://marylandpublicschools.org/msde • Also a trusted site, run by government offices

  9. Poverty Rate • These rates also vary by state, city, and towns throughout the country • http://www.marylandpolicy.org/html/research/POVERTYfaq2004.asp • This is reliable because the statistics are posted by an independent research company who conducts research and surveys throughout Maryland

  10. Health Statistics • Published health statistics are published and are available through the Dept of Health and Mental Hygiene • http://www.dhmh.state.md.us/ • Trusted (Government Site)

  11. Neighborhoods • Neighborhood Statistics were surprisingly easy to locate on a site that is ran by Baltimore City • http://www.ci.baltimore.md.us/neighborhoods/

  12. Workforce • These are found by researching the Department of Labor • http://www.dllr.state.md.us/lmi/

  13. Religion & Demographics • Religion was almost impossible to find because it is a constantly changing statistic • Demographics however, are located almost anywhere you look • http://www.muninetguide.com/states/maryland/municipality/Baltimore.php • This site can be trusted because it is a municipal research company whose sole purpose is to provide statistics of cities, that went from a newsletter to exclusively online in 2003

  14. Data & Statistics • Overall • Data pertaining to cities is very easy to find • Strengths include accuracy, ability to trust • Weakness include being current with data (most current) • Easy to trust sites include government sites and sites affiliated with the government • If there are doubts, read the “About Us” link most reputable websites have • If there is further doubt, DON’T USE IT
