Analyzing 211 Rural Unmet Service Needs
A new report from the Rural Ontario Institute and Ontario 211 Services highlights many differences in how community members access services across urban, rural and remote regions of Ontario. The report stems from an initiative to explore 211 Needs and Unmet Needs data at a community level and understand the value of this information for informing planning and investment decisions about programs and services in Ontario.
The project leveraged data collected by the 211 system in Ontario, and explored different questions about what types of needs people using the referral service have. Specifically, the intent was to see how the data might reveal gaps in service in different geographies and if the reasons that needs are unmet are different.
