Our mission at mySidewalk is to empower the public and city leaders with the most complete, clear, and real-time understanding of our communities so we can improve and innovate together. That public includes the nearly one in five Americans with a disability. Learn how we are making the data shared in our reports and dashboards accessible to everyone.
At mySidewalk, we know that old habits can be hard to break, especially when it comes to innovating in your field and trying new things. In this article, we break down the phenomenon we like to call “Data Disposophobia”--the inability to let go of data we don’t need in order to focus on the data that will make the most compelling story.
