The Providence Plan recently re-launched the data tool, Rhode Island Community Profiles. This tool broadens access to data on such areas as population demographics, housing affordability, unemployment educational attainment, all specific to RI. The tool draws from such sources as the US Census Bureau, the RI Department of Health, RI State Police and Broadband RI. Completely free and maintained by ProvPlan, the website supports access to a range of Rhode Island profiles.
Demographics – Education – Economy – Health – Housing – Infrastructure – Public Safety – Transportation
The Providence Plan is an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit that provides Rhode Islanders and public agencies with data and information to support critical decision making. Our innovative programs improve community well-being and transform lives.
About RI Community Profiles:
This site is designed to provide Rhode Islanders with easy access to data about their communities and assist them in making sense of this information. We hope to empower the government, businesses, nonprofits, institutes of higher education, and residents to use this information to identify local needs, prioritize investments, and advocate for community change.
Rhode Island Community Profiles was created and is maintained by The Providence Plan.
