Actionable Intelligence for Social Policy (AISP) is an initiative funded by the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, with the purpose of improving the quality of education, and health and human service agencies’ policies and practices through the use of integrated data systems. AISP aims to build a nationwide professional network of data expertise and to help executive leaders in municipal, county and state governments use integrated data systems to better develop and evaluate their programs. As we have noted in recent papers, well designed and integrated data systems are a key to determining how to improve economic mobility and health in neighborhoods.
