Overview

Digital Access and Equity in Baltimore City

Research suggests that Baltimore lags behind many cities when it comes to the number of households with home internet connections, with the U.S. Census Bureau’s 2013 American Community Survey ranking Baltimore 261 out of 296 cities surveyed.

According to BNIA’s 2019 Vital Signs 17, 24.6% of Baltimore City households have no access to the internet in their home.

Let’s explore innovative opportunities and data driven solutions to overcome the challenges Baltimoreans face each day participating in the digital economy.

Baltimore Data Day is an annual workshop to help communities expand their capacity to use technology and data to advance their goals. The Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond partners with BNIA-JFI’s Baltimore Data Day to host a panel discussion with community/agency presenters describing available data requiring additional analyses and/or interpretations, followed by a more general discussion of community-academic collaborations. The purpose is to explore how better to improve the health and well-being of Baltimore’s residents through community-academic collaborations.
