Call for Spanish Translation Services

CI:Now has a need for Spanish translation of several different kinds of technical and non-technical content, including our forthcoming new data platform, data literacy training materials, and a focus group guide. If you or someone you know would be interested in giving us pricing for Spanish translation services, or even if you have a vendor to recommend, please get in touch via our contact form for more information about our upcoming needs.

Beta Testers Needed!

The beta version of Bexar Data Dive, our powerful new data platform, launches in early August. We need people to test the beta version and give us feedback about your experience with it, as well as what features and content you'd like to see added in the future. If you're available for about an hour-long virtual or in-person session, please connect via our contact form to learn how to participate.

Featured Tool
ACS Sidekick

Our ACS Sidekick tool makes Texas 5-year estimate data from the Census American Community Survey much faster and easier to process. ACS Sidekick can help if you:

  • need an aggregate (total) estimate for a non-standard range:
    • geographic area, like a nonprofit service area of five zip codes or 17 census tracts
    • age group, like youth aged 17-24 or adults age 55 and older
    • other demographic group, like men of color
    • percent of federal poverty level, like 100%-<299% FPL
    • any other variable grouping.
  • need the margin of error (MOE) for that estimate and don’t want to look up the formula and calculate it manually
  • use the same queries or value sets (e.g., those 17 census tracts in your service area) over and over
Visit for a ton of help using the tool and finding the data you need in the wealth of ACS tables available.
