Actionable Intelligence for Social Policy (AISP) is an initiative that focuses on the development and use of integrated data systems (IDS) for policy and planning.

AISP helps state and local governments collaboratively leverage their data to improve lives.

Who We Are

Actionable Intelligence for Social Policy (AISP)

Established at the University of Pennsylvania in 2008, AISP works with state and local governments to develop Integrated Data Systems (IDS) that link administrative data across government agencies. IDS give governments and their partners the ability to better understand the needs of individuals and communities and improve programs and practices through evidence-based collaboration.
