Community Data

The data collected is based on the 9 Community Statistical Areas (CSA) encompassing surrounding Morgan State University. Community Statistical Areas are clusters of neighborhoods developed by the City’s Planning Department based on recognizable city neighborhoods (Baltimore City Planning, 2104). Data reported for the CSAs follow the updated 2010 Census Tract boundaries which corresponds to neighborhoods which vary in size.

Many of the data sources for the measured indicators come from several secondary sources: Baltimore Neighborhood Indicators Alliance (BNIA), Baltimore City OPEN Data, Baltimore City Police Department-Northeast Police District, and Maryland State Report Card.
