North Attleborough Master Plan Data Page
This page presents information gathered and analyzed by SRPEDD in support of the ongoing North Attleborough Master Plan. Data helps answer many of the basic “where are we now?” and “how are we trending?” questions that can come up during a Master Plan process. As you will see, it is possible to interact with much of the data below by using your mouse to hover over, click on, or download select datasets. A "Data Poster (PDF)" offers an alternative view of these data as well. Data sources include the U.S. Census Bureau, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the Massachusetts Department of Housing and Economic Development (DHCD), the Massachusetts Executive Office of Labor and Workforce Development (EOLWD), the Massachusetts Department of Revenue (DOR), North Attleborough Public Schools, the Town of North Attleborough, and SRPEDD.
Please note that this page is continually under construction as we incorporate new datasets. Please contact Eric Arbeene, AICP with any questions or comments - or if you have additional data that could inform the Master Planning process!
