The Rhode Island Data Hub represents the first major effort in the state to bring together data from multiple state agencies— including the Departments of Education; Health; Children, Youth and Families; and Labor and Training — into a centralized repository for government and public access. An overarching goal of the DataHUB is to overcome existing data silos among public agencies and community-based service providers and the lack of data coordination that limits the ability of agencies to plan, share resources, and measure outcomes.
