About Neighborhood Data for Social Change

USC Price Center

The Neighborhood Data for Social Change (NDSC) platform is a project of the USC Price Center for Social Innovation. NDSC is a free, publicly available online data resource that provides reliable, aggregated data at the city, neighborhood, and census tract level. NDSC pairs raw data across approximately 150 indicators with narrative-based explanations and visualization tools such as data analysis and digital mapping, enabling stakeholders to make data- informed decisions to improve the quality of life for Los Angeles County residents. NDSC will publish an ongoing series of data stories that incorporate maps, data visualizations, photos, and rich narrative to highlight trends, opportunities, and challenges facing communities in the LA region.
