Project Details

What We Need
  • A compilation of research on a specific topic (e.g. industry best practices, literature review, media contacts, industry trends, etc.) including a list of sources
  • Recommendations on areas for further exploration/research
  • Note: This project is not designed to be used for prospect or grant research
Additional Details

I am looking for as much information as possible about the statistics for the City of Buffalo, NY and Erie County regarding multiple categories. Socioeconomic, ethnic, transportation, crime, property value by zip code, etc. Additionlly, any data regarding children by school district, lining in poverty, graduation rate, college readiness, etc.

I also need data on drowning, water safety and ability to swim broken down by ethnicity and income. Other needs as well regarding race and swimming.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have many thoughts, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have some ideas on where to look, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $5,239 , allowing us to provide additional lessons to membership

Wee write grants and present on many issues regarding race and socioeconomic background relating to access to swimming. I would also like data about the influence of seeing representation and how it inspires others from the same background to participate.
