Past Projects

Smart Communities and Broadband Evaluation: Two related projects, managed by Karen Mossberger in collaboration with Caroline Tolbert (University of Iowa) were 1) an evaluation of the City of Chicago’s Smart Communities Program in 9 Chicago neighborhoods and 2)  citywide surveys on technology use in Chicago.  The project includes reports on 3 citywide surveys (2008, 2011, 2013) as well as formative and outcome evaluations of the Smart Communities program.  The surveys and research were funded by the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation and the Partnership for a Connected Illinois (which received support from the Broadband Technologies Opportunity Program of the National Telecommunications and Information Administration).  Archived from the former ASU Center for Policy Informatics website.
