A platform that collates and displays data about localities from around the country (and world) in an easily digestible, comparable manner. High-level and granular data that could be provided may include wi-fi quality, acceptance of minority groups, frequency of crime, voting history and tax rate.
https://teleport.org provides a lot of this information. AFAIK it’s funded by a company that sells relocation assistance to tech companies wanting to recruit internationally.
Thanks for sharing, Chris! I’ve been meaning to reach out to Teleport for a while to learn about their offerings. They’ve put together some decent data but the UI lacks something integral. I do like their intake survey as a way to narrow choices (a la @evelynciara’s comment). The entire platform feels… abandoned? Could be a good partner down the line for the data side.
