Why Open Data Flint
We believe that open community access to data is a means to achieving change. This data repository is an effort of the Healthy Flint Research Coordinating Center (HFRCC), which in collaboration with the Flint community is a partnership among UM-Flint, UM-Ann Arbor, and MSU to work to aid Flint recover and rebuild from the water crisis. The Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR) has joined HFRCC to build Open Data Flint for the community.
Understanding the past and present through careful analysis and re-analysis of data by all stakeholders in a community is the best means to informing a better future. Data placed in the hands of the entire community—the citizen scientists, policymakers, scientists and others—is the way forward. Open Data Flint is committed to ensuring data are findable, accessible, interoperable, and reusable (FAIR) by the community of Flint and the broader public.
