The mean job proximity index of St. Louis County, MN was 52 in 2015.

Median Jobs Proximity Index

The jobs proximity index quantifies access to employment opportunities in a region. Values are percentile ranked and range from 0 to 100, with higher values corresponding to better access to jobs. Data is computed for U.S. counties by applying summary statistics across all census tracts present in a county and is current as of 2015.

The underlying index quantifies the accessibility of a given residential neighborhood as a function of its distance to all job locations within a census tract, with distance to larger employment centers weighted more heavily. Specifically, a gravity model is used, where the accessibility (Ai) of a given residential block-group is a summary description of the distance to all job locations, with the distance from any single job location positively weighted by the size of employment (job opportunities) at that location and inversely weighted by the labor supply (competition) to that location.

    Pedestrian And Bike Crash Data - Dataset

    information.stpaul.gov | Last Updated 2018-10-30T16:06:58.000Z

    This data was provided by the St. Paul Police Department and contains all available information relating to bike and pedestrian crashes in St. Paul. As part of its commitment to improving pedestrian and bike safety, the city of St. Paul began aggressively tracking bike and pedestrian crashes in 2016. Data comes from traditional sources such as the State of MN Police Crash Report System and police reports. It also comes from social media, community conversations, police calls (911 and non-emergency) where no report was made, and other non-traditional ways to verify that a crash occurred. By collecting this level of detail for every pedestrian and bike crash in St. Paul, we are hoping to find patterns and answers to help us reach our goal of reducing the number of crashes and improving safety for all residents and visitors of St. Paul. For more information, please visit the city of Saint Paul's website: https://www.stpaul.gov/departments/police/pedestrian-and-bike-crash-data-city-st-paul
