All Things STL is a confluence of data from the 16-county St. Louis region spanning parts of Missouri and Illinois. Through this site, you can create a map using thousands of data layers or create a customized report that displays important social, health, and economic indicators for a selected area. This site will add more regional data and reporting features over the next year, with a particular focus on priorities of regional funders like the United Way of Greater St. Louis.


All Things STL is a collaboration between the following organizations:


St. Louis Regional Data Alliance (RDA): The RDA is a collection of dozens of data practitioners, users, organizations, and other actors who are working to craft and implement a regional data strategy. The RDA’s mission is to build shared data infrastructure and support strong data actors that use quality data to improve people’s lives.The RDA officially launched in June 2018 and formed an Interim Steering Committee to develop a startup strategy to guide activities until December 2019, vet early data collection and technology activities, and outline the RDA’s long-term governance strategy. The RDA is supported through funding from the Missouri Foundation for Health and the United Way of Greater St. Louis, among other local stakeholders.
