AUTHORS: Michelle Riordan-Nold, CT Data Collaborative

ABSTRACT: Striving for informed decision-making across Connecticut, the CT Data Collaborative empowers an ecosystem of data users by democratizing access to public data and building data literacy. With the increased availability of public data and open data initiatives, users now find themselves with more data than they could have accessed even a decade ago. Though data users have more data at their fingertips, their ability to evaluate data quality and navigate data analysis and reporting remains a challenge. In this session, we present our work to make data not only available but also accessible through www.ctdata.org; our efforts to liberate public data; and our data user engagement workshops held through our CT Data Academy-- designed to increase data literacy, expand data capacity and enable all to use data effectively.
