Neighbourhood and Community Data

Neighbourhoods and communities are the social and physical building blocks of a city. We have developed tools and summaries of local data to better understand our unique and diverse communities. This is part of an ongoing effort to be transparent and make data available about our city and its services.

These community resources will:

  • Empower neighbourhoods and communities to come together using meaningful and reliable data.
  • Provide a complete look at the strengths, challenges, opportunities, and assets in each neighbourhood. This can support neighbourhood-based planning, which is essential to building strong, healthy communities.

Kingston IN Focus Dashboard

Kingston IN Focus is a collaborative project between Queen’s University, the City of Kingston, Kingston Economic Development and the Kingston and Area Association of Museums, Art Galleries and Historic Sites. This work was supported by Mitacs through the Mitacs Business Strategy Internship. This Dashboard draws on research supported by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council Insight Grant 435-2019-0022.  Each of the eight dashboards included point to priority areas of impact in the city from COVID-19 and identify indicators to help us measure municipal resiliency. The dashboards contain both real-time and static data of pre and post pandemic changes. Explore each dashboard to discover and interact with the data.
