Explore State of Indiana Data

The Indiana Management Performance Hub (MPH) is dedicated to facilitating the sharing of Indiana state government data for the improvement of services and outcomes for all Hoosiers. MPH helps to make possible the flow of critical information between state agencies, researchers and community organizations while upholding the most stringent standards for security and protecting the privacy of Indiana citizens.

The Indiana Data Hub

The Indiana Data Hub was established to serve as a resource for a variety of stakeholders, both inside and outside state government, to facilitate the sharing of complex datasets or datasets requiring the sharing of information across multiple agencies. These requests often originate from one of the following stakeholder groups:

  • Formation or evaluation of public policy for the State of Indiana
  • Academic research for universities
  • Formation or evaluation of programming for community-based organizations

The Indiana Data Hub houses data collected by state government agencies and offices in these select categories:

  • Education and Workforce Development
  • Public Safety
  • Health and Human Services
  • Government Transparency
  • Demographics

The Indiana Data Hub does not fulfill state agency public records requests under the Access to Public Records Act (APRA), nor does it facilitate fee-based data access available through the Accounts Center at IN.gov.

Disclaimer: Data available through the Indiana Data Hub is not intended to be used for official agency reporting purposes. Due to differences in geographic aggregation, time period considerations, and units of analysis, State of Indiana data may differ from those reported by individual agencies. Please contact the relevant state agency for inquiries pertaining to officially reported data.

Terminology

  • Available Public Data

    Data that is aggregated and summarized to reflect key metrics while minimizing the risk of individual identification. This data does not require a Data Sharing Agreement (DSA) and is currently available on the Indiana Data Hub.

  • Indiana Data Hub

    The Indiana Data Hub (hub.mph.in.gov) is the central repository maintained by MPH for the State of Indiana’s datasets. Publicly available and free to use, the Indiana Data Hub facilitates the flow of information between state agencies, researchers and the public while
    upholding the most stringent standards for security and individual privacy.

  • Restricted Available Data

    MPH acquires necessary datasets from partner agencies and builds custom dataset according to requirements.

  • Requestor Submits Data Request

    Requestor submits request via MPH’s Data Request Page and MPH staff is assigned to respond to the inquiry.

  • Requester Completes Security Review and Data Sharing Agreement

    If the request involves restricted data, the requestor must complete a data sharing agreement and a security review.

  • MPH Approves Requestor Security Review and DSA

    Once requestor submits the security and legal documents, MPH will review and approve them if there are no further questions.

  • Requestor Granted Access to Dataset

    Following MPH approval and the requestor’s successful completion of the data sharing agreement and security review, the requestor is granted authenticated access to the dataset via the Indiana Data Hub.

  • Restricted Custom Data

    Datasets available for MPH access, but that require approval from source agencies for release to requestors.

  • Source Agency Request Approval

    Data that is not currently available through an existing data sharing agreement must be approved by the source agency or agencies that are the owners of the data.

  • MPH Completes Data Development

    MPH acquires necessary datasets from partner agencies and builds custom dataset according to requirements.

  • MPH Approves Dataset for Publication

    Once data development is complete, MPH must review and approve the dataset to ensure compliance with all relevant laws, regulations, and standards of privacy and security.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is summarized data?

    Data that is aggregated and summarized to reflect key metrics while minimizing the risk of individual identification. This data request may not require a Data Sharing Agreement (DSA).

    Example of Aggregate-level Data

  • Are there costs associated with my data request?

    MPH does not charge end-users for data requests at this time. However, fee-based data access is available through the Accounts Center at IN.gov.

  • How long will it take to fulfill my request?

    This depends on a variety of factors, including whether:

    1. The request is for aggregate-level or de-identified record-level data
    2. The dataset is preapproved by the source agency
    3. Any of the requested datasets reside outside of the MPH catalog (including those provided by the requestor)
    4. MPH has resource availability at time of request

    All requests for non-public or non-preapproved datasets require approval by the source agency that is the original steward of the data. Depending on the nature of the request, the fulfillment of these orders can take anywhere from 2 weeks to 6 months. Estimated completion time starts only after requestor submits all security and legal documents and MPH approves. It is also dependent on timely response from the requestor when follow-up is needed.

    For more information about the estimated time of completion, and a detailed overview of what you can expect for each process, please refer the Data Request Process outlined above.
