From the author(s): Local data intermediaries in the National Neighborhood Indicators Partnership (NNIP) have a shared mission to ensure all communities have access to data and the skills to use information to advance equity and well-being across neighborhoods . To accomplish this mission, NNIP partners create useful indicators across topics at relevant geographies for their communities from surveys and administrative data sources. Building and maintaining a reputation for handling data carefully, protecting confidentiality, and interpreting data thoughtfully and accurately are essential to ensuring a data intermediary’s long-term sustainability. This guide aims to provide resources and advice from the experiences of those in the NNIP network and other related organizations on developing a strong data governance program and protecting the security of confidential data.
