Analytics work in FY18
In FY18, the Analytics team will provide more extensive training, licensing, and data access for department users so that they can more readily work with their own data and combine it with other resources. As departments become more self-sufficient for their own day-to-day analytics needs, the Citywide Analytics Team will focus a growing proportion of its work on more specialized data science and GIS projects in areas such as predictive modeling, automated text analysis, and interactive applications.
In the future, these efforts will give the City new resources to more efficiently:
- process 311 requests and resident feedback;
- protect the health and safety of firefighters and police officers;
- help students at risk of failing or dropping out of school; and
- promote safe, affordable, and accessible housing for all residents.
