This blog is part one of a four-part series on big data analytics and the potential impact of our business model. In this first blog, I answer two critical questions: (1) what is big data? And (2) why is big data analytics important for our work?
Election Day is a week from today, and in DC you can vote before then. Voting isn’t just a right. It’s a responsibility! We are responsible as citizens and as voters for the future of our city, as are our elected officials. The biggest question for me is what do you stand for? Do you stand for DC children?
We look forward to working with new and incumbent members of DC Council, the DC Council Chair and the new Mayor during this critical transition and upcoming budget season to ensure that they are making decisions in the best interests of children.
New parents often face sticker shock when confronted with the steep cost of child care. That's especially true here in the District, where for working parents who don't qualify for subsidies, child care often costs as much as college tuition--and the cost is rising.
In DC early voting started today. As a resident of DC, I’m disappointed with the lack of civic engagement in our city. As a parent and child advocate, I know there are decisions made on the behalf of families every day-- city leaders make decisions that influence the distribution of assets children and their families need. So my question to DC residents: why aren’t we more engaged?
New data included in the KIDS COUNT Data Center show that median family income among households with children continues to grow in DC. In 2012, the number reached $65,100—that’s a 17% increase from 2011 and a historic high.
