New Report: Technology for Civic Data Integration

Urban Institute   (NNIP Coordinator)


NNIP is partnering with the MetroLab Network and Actionable Intelligence for Social Policy (AISP) released a new report, "Technology for Civic Data Integration," that helps readers understand information architecture for civic Innovation, research, and evaluation.
The aim is to better equip states and local governments that seek to integrate data to improve services through evidence-based policy-implementation, research, and collaboration. The report focuses on human and social services, drawing from NNIP and AISP’s long-standing leadership in the field, and developed as part of MetroLab’s Data Science and Human Services Lab, supported by the Annie E. Casey and Kresge Foundations.  
This report provides guidance on information architecture and technical approaches for data integration. Much like MetroLab’s 2017 Ethical Guidelines for Applying Predictive Tools Within Human Services, the report addresses a complex topic with digestible and practical perspectives for government officials, social sector employees, and university collaborators. It focuses on an audience of stakeholders that are interested in establishing or strengthening their data-sharing and data integration activities.
Natalie Evans Harris, a nationally-recognized leader at the intersection of strategic data usage and policy, is the lead author, drawing from a core working group assembled by MetroLab, NNIP and AISP.
