Census 2000 - Special Tabulation for Baltimore City Neighborhoods
(This link will take you to the Johns Hopkins Sheridan Libraries, Government Publications and Law collections page. The 2000 Special Tabulation is no longer available as a direct link. This and many other sources of Baltimore data are available from the Sheridan Library but can only be accessed from within the library)

The BNRC was a partner with 8 local institutions in making these data available and useful for all Baltimore City neighborhoods. The partners pooled their resources and contracted with the United States Census Bureau to obtain this 2000 Census data by Baltimore Neighborhoods.  The participating institutions were:

- Baltimore City Department of Planning
- Baltimore City Department of Housing and Community Development
- Baltimore Memory Study (JSHPH) 
- Baltimore Neighborhood Indicators Alliance  
- Center for Urban Environmental Research and Education at UMBC
- The Institute for Urban Research, Morgan State University
- Johns Hopkins University Sheridan Libraries – Milton S. Eisenhower Library
- University of Maryland Geography Division

    - 2000 census tracts to community statistical


911 Calls

The BNRC geocoded over 4 million 911 calls placed in Baltimore City during the time from 1998 to 2001. This is a map of Baltimore City Neighborhoods.  The darker blue the neighborhood, the higher the number of 911 calls placed per person.
