The CHCS Evaluation, Policy Analysis, & GIS Research Unit is a community based solutions unit that draws on program evaluation, statistical analysis, and geospatial information systems to support other university centers, non-profits, and governments to inform best practices and outcomes.

As part of the Center’s data-driven approach to finding community-based solutions to complex housing and community problems, the CHCS Evaluation, Policy Analysis, & GIS Research Unit  provides data acquisition/management, spatial analysis, and mapping for research projects and reports.  We are skilled in a variety of statistical and policy techniques and in visualizing data through dynamic web mapping applications that allow for user interaction.
