Using Indicators to Understand Neighborhoods

Vital Signs data indicators provide a unique opportunity for anyone to engage with local community-level data to enhance learning about Baltimore.

Do you teach? Instructors across a variety of disciplines, ranging from real estate to public health, have incorporated data into their curriculum through lectures, in-class exercises and homework assignments. See Instructor Resources for learning modules and tools that faculty members can easily incorporate into their teaching.
