Data Portal FAQ

What is the Data Portal?

The data platform provides datasets in the following categories:

  1. Budgetary
  2. Education
  3. Retirement
  4. Health
  5. Public Safety

It is currently limited to state-level data but provides hundreds of variables at the state-level. You can also download the data as a spreadsheet or share it with your friends and colleagues in the form of a table or chart.

Where can I learn more about this data?

You can read some of our research content or look through the datasets that contain links which provide sources.
