Transcript of State Address Survey
Overview of State Programs

Overview Of Address Programs
Goal: gather information regarding efforts across the country to collect, maintain, standardize, and or aggregate address data at the state level.
Objective: Provide burgeoning, mature, and future address programs valuable information as we strive to create efficient, meaningful, and integrated address programs.
Survey consisted of 23 questions distributed via Survey Monkey to POC in every state & territory.
54 Responses representing 49 unique states and territories
Although response rate high, many respondents did not complete survey
Territories/States Without a Formal Address Program
Barriers to implementation
Many answered no, but indicated they were
in the beginning stages of
No one selected "No Interest/No Demand"
Some possible confusion as to what exactly constitutes an "address program"
Diversity of Agencies Administering Address Programs
Office of Policy & Management
Military/Homeland Security Departments
Department of Natural Resources
Public Utilities Commision/Emergency Services
Finance & Administration
Programs often serve many roles
QA/QC standards used to assess data quality
Who Interacts With These Programs?

Start Up Costs
Average start up cost $494,767

Formal agreements refer to MOUs, signed data distribution policies, or other signed agreements.
Very few distribution policies restrict data sharing to internal uses only
"Develop partnerships with the 9-1-1 community as they are the users that have the most need for accurate address data to the subunit level. It is very important meet with them and have a good understanding of the needs of the 9-1-1 community, what they do, and how they would use the data for emergency response. Meet in-person and listen to them and ask questions. It is also important to have frequent communication with all partners to keep them up to date on activities and manage expectations."
"Build relationships. The task at hand can at times seem daunting and unmanageable. Building relationships and support across your state will give you a strong foundation to build from. Don't try to solve everything at once. Start with a vision, promote and get input, modify the vision, implement the vision, share the product, and then ask for continued support and participation."
"Don’t freak out! The task at times seems both infantile (this is easy) and exhaustive (this is complex). Just find an even keel approach for a reasonable amount of resources and time you can access and get to it! Many of us have charged off in different directions to get to the same goal – that is ok as the means is not as important as the objective. However, review the means from all the states and territories around you, understand your state’s objectives, build a plan, and then get to it! The work is fun and in loving the work you will do great work. Remember that the work you are performing is only possible because of the work of many, many others (like local governments) and that your’s is a coordinating role – give lots of due credit to others and stay humble."
"Plan on maintaining the data from day 1."
Conclusions from Survey
Questions designed with a certain intention in mind may be perceived differently by the respondent
Programs range from full on data development & maintenance tools to simple coordination, collection, and dissemination activities.
Multiple use cases and integration
Many programs funded by BTOP money....what happens after next October?
Economies of scale for a national address dataset?
Territories/states With A Formal Address Program
Three potential uses of this data:
1. States – to navigate their path
2. Federal agencies – to assess the readiness of the Nation
3. Consultants – to help fill gaps
If we could…
• Get responses from the remaining states…
• Correct some data-entry errors…
• How will this change over time?
• This presentation…
• The state and territory slides…
• The raw data…
