The Madison Neighborhood Indicators Project (NIP) is a tracking system designed to follow neighborhoods’ wellness over time. Data has been collected since 2008 and can be used to identify trends. The NIP aims to support better understanding of the changes within Madison neighborhoods. The use of the indicators along with local knowledge and other informational resources can help all Madison neighborhoods thrive.
Topics in the NIP, 2020 Edition
The NIP annually measures 56 variables organized within seven topics:
- People and Place
- Public Safety
- City of Madison
- Plan Districts
- Neighborhood Associations
For more information about neighborhood associations in Madison, please see the City of Madison Neighborhoods page.
Who Can Use the NIP?
The NIP can be used by anyone, including community-based organizations, non-profits, educational institutions, the business community, and governmental officials and staff.
Example Uses for the NIP
- writing grants
- comparing neighborhood wellness by specific indicators
- comparing neighborhood changes over time
- helping neighborhood organizations build capacity
The current roster of indicators was developed with guidance from City and community leaders. Input from users continues to help us to refine and improve the data and tools. The NIP coordinators welcome your feedback! Please use our feedback form or contact us directly.

Why This Is Important
Population counts vary considerably across neighborhoods, so keeping those differences in mind is important when making comparisons between them. For instance, more populous areas are likely to have more community pride violations or crime incidents, but that does not mean the per capita rates of pride violations and crime are necessarily higher in those areas.
Did You Know?
Because the total population estimates are based on the 2010 Census, they may not fully reflect recent developments that have significantly increased the population in some areas. Population growth is most likely to have occurred in places where the number of dwelling units has increased significantly since 2010.
About the Data
APL estimates based on 2010 Census. Because these figures are derived from 2010 data, any changes over time are a result of boundary changes; they do not reflect actual changes in housing since 2010.
