Shift Data Bytes


As part of our mission to transform data into actionable information that improves the social sector’s ability to serve low-income communities, Shift Research Lab develops and maintains web-based technology tools that provide free data and analysis on social issues. We continuously update these tools with the most current information available from our data partners. To highlight new data that is added, we are releasing Shift Data Bytes—an ongoing series of data snapshots.

The first edition of Data Bytes is focused on vulnerable births in Colorado and includes data visualizations, key findings and trends in our region. 

The second edition explores mobility in Colorado and provides insight into how the region has changed over time. Download the bytes below. 

Our third edition examines the racial and ethnic composition of homeownership in the region.
