As a data analyst intern at WalkBoston this past summer, I had the incredible opportunity to work on several projects involving pedestrian crash data.

The first project is designing town-specific pedestrian crash profiles for Mass in Motion communities, shown on the left. By organizing key data in an accessible, concise way, these profiles aim to help towns and cities better understand how and why these crashes happen in their communities.

The second project is conducting spatial analysis with an age-friendly focus, shown on the right. We looked at pedestrian crashes involving older adults and how they spatially related to relevant demographic, geographic, and built environment factors. By translating data into compelling visualizations, our analysis can encourage lively community discussions around pedestrian safety and age-friendly walking.

Moving forward, we hope to continue using data to tell important stories and make informed decisions that can help us all strive towards safer, healthier, and more equitable communities.
