Assessment Summary

Steps for improving: 1) Increase number datasets; there was a decrease in datasets this quarter; 2) Improve public engagement; current strategy doesn't seem to be working (no issues on github page) 3) Provide responses to "use and impact"; responses have not been updated since last quarter

See below Primary Uses
The following are the five most used HUD datasets from data.gov. However, due to privacy constraints the users of and how these data are used is unknown. HUD Subprime and Manufactured Home Lender List Data Dictionary URL: http://www.HUDuser.org/portal/datasets/manu.html Public Housing Physical Inspection Scores Data Dictionary URL: http://www.HUDuser.org/portal/datasets/pis/Data_Dictionary_Pub_Hsg_Property.doc Multifamily Housing Physical Inspection Scores Data Dictionary URL: http://www.HUDuser.org/portal/datasets/pis/DataDictionary_Multifamily_Assisted_Property_Physical.doc Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) Qualified Census Tract (QCT) Data Dictionary URL: http://www.HUDuser.org/portal/datasets/qct.html CPD Appropriations Data Dictionary URL: http://archives.HUD.gov/offices/cpd/systems/idis/library/refmanual/ref_man_b.pdf In addition, Zillow uses our data to develop innovative apps for the American public. Creating these apps eliminates the frustration of not being able to get to government data. Here are some of the HUD Datasets that were used during the hackathon/datajam: Fair Market Rents: http://zillowhack.hud.opendata.arcgis.com/datasets/e29dca94b6924766a124d7c767e03b75_0 Housing Choice Vouchers by Tract: http://zillowhack.hud.opendata.arcgis.com/datasets/42c4d3d6648c4d5196fa0002af457383_0 Public Housing Buildings: http://zillowhack.hud.opendata.arcgis.com/datasets/2a462f6b548e4ab8bfd9b2523a3db4e2_0 Public Housing Developments: http://zillowhack.hud.opendata.arcgis.com/datasets/1cef73e2612f4cf7a46f8e40108d72bc_0 Location Affordability Index: http://zillowhack.hud.opendata.arcgis.com/datasets/27b53ea69f98474eb002ac3b9c6b51eb_0 Settle Neighborhoods: http://zillowhack.hud.opendata.arcgis.com/datasets/6d0465923f654659a8b5f2217c203f1e_0 LIHTC: http://zillowhack.hud.opendata.arcgis.com/datasets/c0d79831f95c46018349657dc768ddc4_0 MF Properties: http://zillowhack.hud.opendata.arcgis.com/datasets/c55eb46fbc3b472cabd0c2a41f805261_0 Public Housing Authorities: http://zillowhack.hud.opendata.arcgis.com/datasets/0e99651ec61242648f3128e8fd36be4d_0 Housing Counseling: http://zillowhack.hud.opendata.arcgis.com/datasets/d12c47b8b3d94701a13e9e87ea18c6a0_0 All of these are available on Data.gov, but the API's were created specific to the hackathon except for Housing Counseling, which already existed as an API. In addition, our Office of Policy Development and Research recently did a survey on our users, and it was determined the following are our top 7 users: Researchers/academic; federal/state/local government; Housing Practitioner; student; Housing advocate; consultant's; and grantees.
Value or impact of data
See below Primary data discovery channels
We recently had our very first housing hackathon/datajam at Zillow headquarters in Seattle, VA. HUD provided 10 datasets for this event, which are already published on Data.gov We also have a site called HUDUSER.ORG which we promote through email and the periodical published by our Office of Policy Development and Research (PD&R) called The Edge.
See below User suggestions on improving data usability
During the housing hackathon we asked the users to provide feedback as to how we can make improvements to the usability of our data, and what other additional datasets they would like to see us publish. We are awaiting feedback. The following are suggestions from survey respondents: plain language descriptions of data sets would improve usability and customer satisfaction. In addition, access to datasets can be made easier. For example, to access the income limits, users first go to landing page, then to the specific year, from where they access the documentation.
See below User suggestions on additional data releases
We are waiting for user feedback from our hackathon. The survey respondents said: need more datasets on rural areas, and elderly and disabled housing, better explanations of the datasets.
