Leaders of legal services programs and staff of LSC’s Office of Data Governance and Analysis will discuss and profile methods and tools programs can use to more easily obtain and analyze data to understand community needs and develop and fund advocacy to address those needs. ODGA staff will briefly highlight lessons learned from a year-long study of grantees’ needs assessments and profile the new Civil Legal Aid Data page on the LSC website, which provides a range of data tools and resources for analyzing the legal needs of low-income people. The presentation will then focus on a tool that enables users to easily access and download a range of Census demographic and economic data at multiple geographic levels (national, state, LSC service area, congressional district, and county). Program leaders will identify and discuss ways the tool can help them improve their programs’ planning, advocacy, and fundraising.
