Data and Policy Analytics
The Data and Policy Analytics (DAPA) unit was established to serve as a resource for data analysis and data-related projects at the Office of Policy and Management. The DAPA unit directs and manages activities related to the collection, analysis, sharing, coordination and dissemination of data and is responsible for the development and implementation of the State Data Plan, the State’s Open Data Portal, and P20 WIN, the State’s integrated data system. The use of data across agencies facilitates a system-wide perspective and is a critical component of Governor Lamont’s statewide performance and results agenda to implement a data-driven and informed policy agenda in state government that is user-friendly, cost-effective, data-informed, and results-driven.
The DAPA unit is here to support state agencies with their data needs. We assist with open data (publishing, visualizations, etc.), data integration (identifying data sources and data linkage/matching), analytics (strategy development, etc.), best practices, and coordination and facilitation.
