Data Collection by the Numbers

Thursday, September 10, 2015
NY4P's summer survey team covered a lot of ground this year collecting data for our next Report Card on Parks. Here are some stats on their stats:

6 surveyors traveled to:
5 boroughs in
10 weeks to collect data in
39 parks.

They took more than:
200 subway rides and covered
449 acres of parkland in
770 man-hours (and woman-hours).

They leave more than 1,200 data sheets and
3,000-plus photographs for analysis - which they collected using
3 tablet computers and 
2 digital cameras (equipped with 6 backup batteries).

Our next steps are to take that massive pile of data and find out what it tells us about the health of our parks - and we've been given a huge head start with their work.
