PREV-STAT – The IPRC’s GIS in Prevention Service
PREV-STAT’s online GIS in Prevention data series is published annually. It presents statistics for basic demographics, like income and education, but focuses on statistics describing risk and protective factors for drug use. Drawing from a myriad of sources, including census and market research data, it compares your county to the state and the nation, as well as to the rest of Indiana’s counties.
The PREV-STAT’s custom service uses GIS to generate reports for selected geographic areas such as a neighborhood, zip code, town, school district or a region. PREV-STAT allows users to demonstrate the spatial relationships that exist among the data. Maps can reveal relationships between two seemingly unrelated issues or items. Representing data in map form makes statistics immediately meaningful and lead to better and quicker decision-making. PREV-STAT’s online and custom products allow you to convey your message dynamically in visual presentations for a potential funder, client, or a larger audience.
