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 goal of the Data and Policy Analytics unit is to work across state agencies to meet the goals of the State Data Plan and other data initiatives.

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.

For more assistance, please visit our Agency Guidance page. A brief summary of state data efforts, including the related legislative and statutory basis, is here.
