Job Opportunities

The Data Center is the most trusted resource for data about greater New Orleans and Southeast Louisiana. Founded in 1997, we are fully independent, and we are experts at bringing data together from multiple sources. In doing so, we are uniquely able to step beyond the limits of analyzing data from just one perspective and take a 360–degree look at issues that matter most to our region from government, business, nonprofit, and community perspectives.

The Data Center is as good at getting data out as it is at putting it together. We assemble information in a way that is easy to understand and to the point. Our reports regularly reach over 100,000 individuals, including neighborhood leaders, members of the media, elected officials, business leaders, and other researchers. In these ways, The Data Center realizes its mission to build prosperous, inclusive, and sustainable communities by making informed decisions possible.

The Data Center’s areas of expertise include disaster recovery, regional economic analysis, workforce development, racial disparity indicators, and coastal population movements.
