In 2017, MetroLab launched its Data Science and Human Services Lab, as an effort to bring together academics, city and county practitioners, and non-profit leaders to consider the issues at the intersection of technology, analytics solutions, and human services deployment.

Report- Technology for Civic Data Integration

 

MetroLab Network, in partnership with National Neighborhood Indicators Partnership (NNIP) and Actionable Intelligence for Social Policy (AISP), has released a new report, “Technology for Civic Data Integration” that provides brief, practical guidance to describe key considerations in building and sustaining IDS and the various technology approaches for overcoming challenges in data integration. This report is primarily intended for government agencies and their partners who are working on using integrated data to improve services, drawing from NNIP and AISP’s long-standing leadership in those fields, and developed as part of MetroLab’s Data Science and Human Services Lab. This report was made possible thanks to the support of the Annie E. Casey Foundation.

The report is meant to serve as a guide for practitioners, a resource for local government leaders, and a conversation-starter for advocates and stakeholders.
