The Mayor's Office of Data Analytics (MODA) is New York City's civic intelligence centre. MODA aggregates and analyses data from across city agencies to more effectively address public safety, and quality of life issues. The office uses analytical tools to prioritise risk more strategically, deliver services more efficiently, enforce laws more effectively and increase transparency. For example, during Hurricane Sandy, which displaced an eighth of NYC's population, the city's response was managed through analytics. MODA integrated residents' responses to surveys to allocate disaster response resources to the most vulnerable residents.
