The Metropolitan Council Research team has put together a dataset to provide equity-relevant characteristics for all census tracts in the Twin Cities Region. You may have heard of and worked with Areas of Concentrated Poverty (ACP). The new Equity Considerations dataset replaces ACPs to provide nuanced information in conjunction with community engagement efforts and additional local knowledge (as described in the User Guide). In this episode, Krysten Ryba-Tures and Matt Schroeder from the Council’s Research team explain this dataset and its applications for local planning.
