The Disability Data Deficit
Time & Location
About the Event
What is the disability data deficit and how is it affecting New York City residents with disabilities? Assets like cell phone data and 311 tracking play a role in attaining critical data but are complicated by people’s decisions to self-disclose personal information. Leveraging this data can shape how we emphasize accessibility initiatives and concerns in the policy decisions and future design of New York City.
The Urban Tech Hub’s Entrepreneur-In-Residence and Sam Schwartz New York General Manager and Principal Meera Joshi sits down with Commissioner of the New York City Mayor’s Office for People with Disabilities Victor Calise to discuss the disability data deficit and how we can use data to make a difference
