Milwaukee Data Consortium
The Milwaukee Data Consortium (MDC) is comprised of various data sources and intermediaries who recognize the need for the further integration and coordination of available data sources. Our mission, therefore, is to make, in an objective manner, a wide range of data (e.g. health, human service, crime/criminal justice, housing, education) available to the community's residents, neighborhoods, planners, advocates, researchers, organizations, and all levels of government for analysis and decision-making. In doing so, the MDC employs all of the technological advances and tools at its disposal to ensure that the data is both as accessible and usable for all groups in the community as possible. The Consortium members collaborate not only with one another, but also with data providers, users, and other groups to ensure a continuous flow and use of quality data for community problem-solving.
