Abstract: This project focused on a feasibility study for the creation of a Data Center at The College of Wooster designed to serve United Way and the entire Wayne County community in assessing the collective impact of community investments, collaborations and partnerships on people's lives. The project team also researched and identified appropriate indicators to measure poverty locally, continuing the work of prior poverty research conducted with United Way and The College of Wooster.
