The State of North Carolina Cities (SNCC) Data Portal is a long-term initiative developed to inform citizens and policymakers about the changes occurring in North Carolina’s cities. With funding from the Z. Smith Reynolds Foundation, the Center for Urban and Regional Studies is assessing changes in the conditions of North Carolina’s 44 largest cities (representing 40% of the state’s population). We hope that the SNCC Data Portal will be used by citizens’ and policymakers’ to better understand the challenges faced by many North Carolina cities. By presenting these data in an easily digestible format we hope that policymakers and citizens across the state will be better able to craft effective economic and social development policies.
