CaRDI New York Minute

The New York Minute is published every other month and highlights a NYS trend and data source on varying community development topics. CaRDI publications are designed to provide our readers with research-based information to help foster dialogue at the local, regional and state-level, and to inform public and private decision-making around critical community and economic development issues. The New York Minute is written by Robin Blakely-Armitage and Jan Vink, reflecting a partnership and collaboration between CaRDI and PAD, Cornell’s Program on Applied Demographics.

The New York Minute is free for public reproduction with proper accreditation. For questions and comments about the Minute, please contact Senior Extension Associate, Robin Blakely-Armitage at rmb18@cornell.edu.
