What is the Civic Pulse?

The Civic Pulse is a newsletter by Civilytics Consulting, written by Jared Knowles. It provides updates on the work Civilytics is doing with partners around the country to help rebuild our democracy by improving our government institutions and lifting up voices that have long been excluded from public debate.

What is Civilytics?

Civilytics is an independent data science consulting firm founded in 2016. Civilytics’ mission is:

Building inclusive public analytics for government accountability.

Civilytics believes:

The work to reinvigorate our democracy must begin at the local level where the public has the greatest control and barriers to collective action are the lowest. Civilytics is focusing on building the tools communities need to understand and deliberate about the performance of their local governments.
