Save Time & Money Wrangling Data

"To get to the measures I wanted to have, going through what was available and narrowing it to what I needed, even when I didn't have time to go through and do it myself. Those have made it really easy, I did it all in less than an hour."

Amber Starn
Epidemiologist and Director of Community Health and Evaluation, Charles County

“I've told colleagues and partners about mySidewalk. I shared how great the product is and how the team has been so incredible. To do my job effectively, I need impactful data that will help me make a case for my work. I also need to be able to get that information quickly. mySidewalk gives me both.”
Jeanette Metzler
“I like the concept of telling stories, because a lot of our data comes from different partners, different sources. [Data storytelling] pulls it all together and shows what can do to create impact.”
Diana Prieto
Florida Department of Health in Duval County
“One part of the request wanted data for 37 counties in south Texas. Specifically, the percentage of uninsured for each county and a breakdown based on race/ethnicity. I easily created a table and downloaded a spreadsheet within an hour or so. If I had to do this manually using US Census Bureau ACS, I would need several hours. Thanks for the great product!”
Tina Lopez
San Antonio Metro Health District
“Using this tool helps us create better transparency, increase stakeholder buy-in, and saves us several hours a week. It’s just so user-friendly and easy for us to use. We also love that the data is easy to share and download. Those things are huge value-adds for us.”
Paul Flavien
Broward Metropolitan Planning Organization
“For me, making an impact is people actually looking at the dashboard and using what's there, whether it's using it to start a conversation, downloading the link and sending it to someone else — to use the information that's on the site.”
Lynn Kennedy
Florida Department of Health in Volusia County
“If I'm creating visualizations, mySidewalk helps simplify that process a bit. I'm able to customize it pretty easily — the title, the colors, the geographies and the labels are pretty straightforward to use.”
Stephen Ma
