United Way of Salt Lake uses data to track the high-level progress of students and families in our communities. We also use these indicators to see how factors, such as being from a low-income family, being a student of color, and being an English Language Learner, can result in opportunity gaps, where students test lower than their fellow peers because they do not have the same access to resources. This data, and the insight into overall student success and closing achievement gaps and overall student success, informs the work we do.

For children to succeed, they need a continuum of uninterrupted opportunities and support; this means each stage of development is a foundation for the opportunities that follow – children benefit from a concrete path to success. We track academic proficiencies and achievement gaps of our local students from "cradle-to-career" in eight major categories.
We collect data from local and state agencies that give us insight into the demographics of our community members, including age, race, employment status, and healthcare coverage. These data points provide context for the academic and health outcomes we track at the Promise Partnership and community, district, and school levels.
Each year, over 40,000 calls are made to Utah 211 to get connected to local health and human services. The data from these calls, as well as from app and website visits, gives us insight into what are the most pressing needs in our community are at any given time, as well as who in our community needs support.
