One of the few constants in the world is change – our lives, towns, neighborhoods and economic conditions are continuously changing over time. Public data are a democratic means to track these changes since they are available to advocates, businesses, journalists, public employees, scientists, think tanks, and the public at large. Join us to discuss how data are used by a variety of stakeholders to reveal these trends at the 2024 Annual Conference: Unlocking the Potential of Public Data.
