About Good Work Collaborative

The Good Work Collaborative is a social impact consulting cooperative that provides tools and technical support for community-based initiatives and the partners that support them.

One of their projects, the Orange County Census Atlas (, presents an analysis of community activation trends using self-response rates from the 2020 Census. It is a public reference tool that completes the story of “what happened” in the 2020 Census self-response phase by showing how demographic groups responded across every city in Orange County.

This tool is built as a public digital textbook filled with data tables, maps, graphs, analysis prompts, and interpretive text written for community-based outreach partners. The analysis provided in the Atlas can be used to inform equity-focused investments and outreach strategies for future community activation initiatives ranging from social services to civic engagement over the next decade.
