      Anchorage Community Indicators is a public education project of the Justice Center aimed at providing information about various aspects of the Anchorage municipality through maps and tables. This issue provides an overview of the project and introduces Series 1, "Anchorage Community Survey," which presents results from a telephone survey conducted by the Justice Center in the spring of 2003. Series 1 focuses on respondents' attitudes on five issues — schools, public transportation, snow removal, police performance, and emergency medical services — and on residential stability.

In the spring of 2003 the Justice Center conducted a telephone survey of randomly selected households in Anchorage to collect information on a variety of topics, including residential stability. In all, more than 1,900 individual respondents 18 years of age or older participated in the survey. To measure residential stability throughout the municipality, respondents were asked by interviewers how long they had lived in their current neighborhood. Answers ranged from 2 weeks to 62 years; the median length of residency was 5 years.
    • Atlas of Anchorage Community Indicators

      Langworthy, Robert H.; Flexman-Evans, Shel L.; Chamard, Sharon; McKelvie, Alan R.; Yunker, Donald (Justice Center, University of Alaska Anchorage, 2009-05)
      The Anchorage Community Indicators (ACI) project is designed to make information (extracted from data) accessible so that conversations about the health and well-being of Anchorage may become more completely informed. Policy makers, social commentators, service delivery systems, and scholars often stake out positions based on anecdotal evidence or hunches when, in many instances, solid, empirical evidence could be compiled to support or challenge these opinions.The Atlas of Anchorage Community Indicators makes empirical information about neighborhoods widely accessible to many different audiences. The initial selection of indicators for presentation in the Atlas was inspired by Peter Blau and his interest in measures of heterogeneity (diversity) and inequality and by the work of the Project on Human Development in Chicago Neighborhoods. In both cases the measures they developed were well-conceptualized and validated. The Atlas presents community indicators at the census block group level derived from data captured in the 2000 U.S. Census and the 2005 Anchorage Community Survey. All maps in the Atlas are overlaid by Community Council boundaries to facilitate comparisons across maps.

    • Exploratory Spatial Analyses of Sexual Assaults in Anchorage

      Rosay, André B.; Langworthy, Robert H. (Justice Center, University of Alaska Anchorage, 2004-04)
      Using data on the locations of sexual assaults reported to the Anchorage Police Department in 2000 and 2001, the authors used Exploratory Spatial Data Analysis techniques to (1) identify the locations where sexual assaults were concentrated and (2) examine the correlates of these spatial concentrations. In both analyses, the authors also examined differences between white and Native victimizations. The spatial concentrations of sexual assault victimizations vary significantly by race, as do the correlates of the respective spatial concentrations. The authors conclude that there is a relationship between assault locations and bar locations, but that the relationship far from perfect and the question of whether there is a causal mechanism exists remains unknown. Nonetheless, successful interventions to prevent sexual assaults must involve bars; but targeting bars will be both inefficient and insufficient for fully addressing the problem of sexual assault prevention in Anchorage.
