Data Sources

SAVI provides access to national, state, and local information to offer the most comprehensive set of Central Indiana data available through a single source.

But we are much more than a clearinghouse. Our expert analysts transform and geocode data from dozens of sources to create powerful community metrics.

We have more data in our data warehouse than is available in all of our tools. If you are looking for something you cannot find, or need data in a different format, please contact us.

How SAVI Transforms Data Into Information

Our team of experts transformsand repurposes data originally collected for administrative operations to make them useful and meaningful for community planning and analysis. We geo-enable data to associate certain demographics with particular locations, tabulate information into meaningful indicators to reveal trends, and format the data to visualize geographic patterns.

In all, we provide more than 13,500 indicators (such as the percent of population in poverty) in categories like arts and culture, demographics, economy, education, crime, heath, housing, public assistance, transportation and mobility, and many more.

Indicators can be viewed for multiple community types, including county, township, school corporation, city, neighborhood, police jurisdiction, zip code, census tract, and census block group.

We also have information on 25,000 programs and services that address health and human service needs in Central Indiana, helping you better assess community needs and map service gaps.

Much of our data are available for the years 1988 to the present, allowing you to uncover changes over time.

The depth of our information offers you the opportunity for unparalleled precision to understand, report on and respond to the social realities in more than 2,000 Central Indiana Communities.
