About Data Team

The New York City Council’s Data Team uses a data-driven approach to impact the New York City Council’s policy making process.

The Data Team answers questions and informs laws about everything from public housing residents’ heat, to school bus delays, and marijuana arrests.

The Data Team also uses data to conduct oversight of City Agencies.

We source datasets, create data analysis and models, maps, and dashboards to assist Council staff and Council Members to use data to make decisions.

Our unique strength is in marrying data with public policy making.
