IMNashville: Improving Health, Eliminating Disparities in Nashville/Davidson County
“IM Nashville” was developed to promote collaboration between academic and community partners to improve the health status and eliminate health disparities among the residents of Nashville/Davidson County.
The use of GIS and interactive mapping are highly suitable for analyzing epidemiological data, revealing trends, and identifying how Youth Violence is affected by the physical, built, and social environments.
Tools on this page will help you identify levels of youth violence in your community and better understand its relationship to the physical, built, and social environments. Tools include:
- Community Assets to map youth serving agencies and resources by school attendance zones and political districts in Davidson County. This tool also allows you to map data from the US Census by geographic area, including poverty, median household income, etc.
- Interactive Maps to map homicide and arrest data by different areas of interest (zipcode, high school, middle school, elementary school, census tract, and neighborhood)
- Charts/Graphs to calculate youth violence arrest rates by census tract
- Online Searchable Database to query specific attributes of persons arrested for violent crimes from the Police Arrest Database of the Metro Nashville Police Department from 2006-2008.
- Academic/Community Partners to identify academic and community partners that are interested or involved in youth violence prevention research.
